Lntroduced the discussion. The full Board had carefully reviewed and 
discussed various versions of the Statement at a number of meetings 
over several months. Chairman Healey expressed the gratitude of the 
Trustees to Mr. Wellman and other members of the Study Group for their

(also in-jphe<-AAUPtSta£eHents)«.thati.itlaau£actiihty 'should have primary f ..u 
responsibility for academic matters. Increased participation by stu- 
dents will continue to be a concern before the Student Senate and the 
Trustees. President Wood commented that this as well as other segmen- 
al responsibility and participation will continue to be developed. 
As the principal academic and executive officer of the University he 
will seek as much student input as possible, particularly in budget- 
ing and planning. Chairman Healey added that the Board has tried to 
protect the interests of each group involved but that it will require 

he good will and cooperation of all to initiate and maintain the 
Intent of the Statement. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To accept and adopt as the working instrument for 
the multicampus University of Massachusetts the 
Statement on University Governance (DOC. T73-098) . 

President Wood referred to the Durham Declaration (DOC. T73- 
076) of November 20, 1972, which set forth a major step in regional 
educational cooperation with emphasis on common planning and coordi- 
nation in academic and public service areas. The graduate deans, 
principal academic officers, and Extension and Continuing Education 
personnel of the six land-grant colleges proceeded to develop a plan 
)f implementation which the Presidents considered last weekend. The 
final report of the consultant will be available to the various Boards 
md principal officers in mid-April. On May 21, the Presidents expect 
o begin implementation of the structure and specific programs. 

Chancellor Bromery, UM/ Amherst, reported that the hearing 
jefore the Director of Standardization and Personnel regarding the 
collective bargaining petition filed by the Massachusetts Society of 
'rofessors has been postponed until April 18. The Amherst administra- 
:ion is concerned about effects of collective bargaining on the flexi- 
jility necessary in leveling off at a 25,000-student ceiling. The 
Trustees and the President's Office will be kept informed of develop- 
ments. 

Dean Soutter, UM/Worcester Medical School, stated that the 
consultant for the state Department of Personnel does not agree that 
:he operation of the Power Plant is complex and requires specialized 
personnel; however, discussion is continuing. An alternate, but more 
expensive solution for manning the plant would be by contract with an 
outside firm. The June occupancy of the main building, which depends 
jn the Power Plant for air conditioning and heating, necessitates 
aperation of the Plant by that time. 

Speaking for Trustee Pumphret, Chairman of the Committee on 
finance, Treasurer Johnson reported a communication relative to the 
sroxy issues of the Honeywell Corporation received from the Mt. Toby 
friends (Quakers) and also from Trustee Ladd. A meeting of that Com- 
nittee will be held shortly after April 10. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy was presented by Chairman Troy. The Tenure Planning Review 
had been initiated by the Board on November 21, 1972 (DOC. T73-069). 
Stressed at that time was the importance of the campuses operating 
within much firmer and clearer guidelines as the University moves int<}> 
the changing educational climate of the seventies. A reasonable 

alance between tenured and untenured faculty must be maintained. The 
distribution of tenured faculty by age and rank must be carefully 
managed . An implicit condition has been that faculties "must be con- 
tinually renewed from within." 

As reported to the Committee by Vice Chancellor Gluckstern, 
an effort is being made in the Tenure Plans and Recommendations , UM/ 
Amherst (DOC. T73-143A) to stabilize tenured faculty within a few

Educational Policj 



years with further reduction anticipated through early retirements, 
exchange programs, recruitment of faculty at lower ranks, and the use 
pf visiting lecturers. However, the rapid expansion of the late 
sixties added many faculty members with expectations of receiving ten- 
ure. Dr. Gluckstern pointed out that only 11 recommendations were noi: 
approved last year as compared with 23 to 25 this year. Exclusive of 
those from the School of Engineering, which were temporarily withheld 
by Chancellor Bromery, 73 recommendations for tenure are now sub- 
mitted for UM/ Amherst. 

The Committee delayed action on the Tenure Recommendations 
for UM/Boston to provide Chancellor-designate Golino an opportunity 
to review them. 

Chairman Troy presented Tenure Plans, UM/Boston (DOC. T73- 
143B) as submitted by Acting Vice Chancellor Marshall. He noted that , 
although Colleges I and II are substantially completed, UM/Boston is 
still a developing institution with a young faculty and many unknowns 
such as the graduate program and the development of Colleges III, IV, 
and V. The percentage of tenured faculty is somewhat lower than UM/ 
Amherst. 

The criteria for tenure evaluations include teaching , 
scholarship, and service. Heavier emphasis is gradually being given 
to teaching. Trustee Ladd had stressed to the Committee the continued 
need for student participation in personnel policy decisions. Chan- 
cellor Bromery and Vice Chancellor Gluckstern had assured him of their 
efforts in this direction. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the tenure recommendations for UM/ Amherst, 

effective September 1, 1974, as listed in DOC. T73-143A, 
with the exception of the School of Engineering. 

Chairman Troy then reviewed the Proposed Change in the

VOTED ; That section 2 of the University of Massachusetts 
Sabbatical Leave Policy which now reads , "The 
opportunity shall be available to all full-time 
faculty members who hold the rank of Instructor or 
above, and who have given the University six years 
of full-time service, as detailed in Document T70- 
130," be reworded and expanded as follows: 

2. All members of the professional staff who hold 
the rank of Instructor or above, and who have 
given the University at least six years of 
service, shall be considered eligible for 
sabbatical leave and may apply. Sabbatical 
leaves will be awarded after thorough review and 
evaluation of the merits of the individual 
leave proposal. 

3. Full-time faculty previously on part-time appoint- 
ments will be given equivalent credit for part- 
time service (e.g., eight years at 1/2 time and 
two years at full time = six years) and will be 
eligible for sabbatical leave based on current 
full-time salary. Part-time faculty will be 
eligible for sabbatical leave based on part-time 
salary after six years of part-time service. 

Regarding the Establishment of the Department of Theatre 
in the Faculty of Humanities and Fine Arts, UM/ Amherst (DOC. T73-139) 
Chairman Troy commented that the Theatre Program was placed in the 

artment of Speech in the Faculty of Behavioral Sciences when the 
College of Arts and Sciences was divided into three faculties. On 
motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : To approve the move of the Theatre Program from the 
Department of Speech in the Faculty of Social and 
Behavioral Sciences to the Faculty of Humanities and 
Fine Arts of the College of Arts and Sciences, UM/ 
Amherst, as an independent department. 

The Committee also recommended approval of a Major in 
Chinese, a Major in Japanese, and a Certificate in Asian Studies , 



UM/ Amherst (DOC. T73-140) . These courses have been offered for four 
years with 20-30 percent of the enrollment from thercfcher area 
colleges. Immediate designations as majors in Chinese or Japanese by 
10-12 students are expected, while the Certificate will provide a 
minor in the discipline. Both the faculty and the library holdings 
are considered to be adequate. No budget increase is requested. On 
motion made and seconded , it was 

VOTED : To approve a Major in Chinese, a Major in Japanese, 
and a Certificate in Asian Studies in the Asian 
Studies Program in the Faculty of Social and 
Behavioral Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences, 
UM/Amherst.

Change ; 



JM/Amherst (DOC. T73-141) . Originally concerned mainly with public 



speaking, the Department of Speech is now involved in other areas of 
:ommunication; i.e., mass communication and communication disorders. 
Dn motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the name change from the Department of 
Speech to the Department of Communication Studies 
in the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences, 
College of Arts and Sciences, UM/Amherst. 

Chairman Troy then presented the Request from the School of 
Engineering to Drop the Degree Program in Aerospace Engineering, UM / 



.Amherst (DOC. T73-142) . There has not been sufficient student inter- 



est to continue attempts to accredit the program; however, the course 
option will be available under Mechanical Engineering. It was then 
moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the deletion of the Degree Program in 

Aerospace Engineering in the Department of Mechanical 
Engineering of the School of Engineering, UM/Amherst. 

The Committee also discussed restoration of Credit for ROTC 
bourses, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-124). It was requested that more sup- 



UN1VERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Troy turned to the recommendation for a Name 
Department of Speech to Department of Communication Studies , 



;>ort information be provided before this item goes to the Board, 
particularly since several new Trustees have joined the Board since 
he vote on May 10, 1972, to terminate ROTC credit. 

In his second College III Curriculum Report, UM/Boston 

(DOC. T73-137), Dean Strange had reported to the Committee on (1) the 
specif icational certificates and related administrative procedures, 

(2) the faculty organizational plan, and (3) a slightly revised 
governance procedure. Recruitment of the 300 students and their 

acuity has proceeded on schedule. The number of applications will 
permit careful selection at both levels for the first-year opening in 

September 1973. The vote being requested today is for general sup- 
port of the development of the College of Public and Community Service 

:o date. It does not imply acceptance of the College's constitution 
or of the recommendations made in the reports. The Committee identi- 
fied a need at UM/Boston for more sharply defined guidelines for the 
acceptance of new programs as well as for the responsibility of the 

Jniversity Assembly, the Chancellor, and the Provost. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To authorize College III at the University of Massa- 
chusetts/Boston to continue to develop as a College 
of Public and Community Service, enrolling up to 
300 students for the academic year 1973-74 and hiring 
faculty and administrative and support personnel as 
required for the program within guidelines established 
by the Provost and the Chancellor.

Report of 
Committee on 
Student 
Activities 

TRUSTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Reporting for the Committee on Student Activities, Chairman 
Rowland said that discussion on counseling and support services had 
continued at the March 19 meeting. She thanked Vice President Edel- 
man for his assistance in preparing a draft statement on student 
services at UM/Boston. Mrs. Rowland read that statement, with minor 
changes, into the record as follows: 

"Beginning in mid-1971 the Committee on Student 
Activities held a series of meetings regarding the status 
of student services at the University, especially at the 
Boston campus. In May 1972 this effort culminated in 
Trustee adoption of a policy statement recognizing *the 
importance and the need for a comprehensive, constructive 
program of counseling, advising and support services 
designed to encourage creativity. ' The statement was pro- 
mulgated in the light of the work of the Student Activities 
Committee and of a lengthy study conducted by a pan-Univer- 
sity working group chaired by Dr. Robert Gage under appoint 
ment from the President. 

"A year ago the Trustees were especially concerned 
about the situation regarding student services at the 
Boston campus. Because of this concern, the Trustee Stu- 
dent Activities Committee recently asked for a status 
report from UM/Boston regarding its progress. 

"We had a meeting on March 19 and we received the 
report. It reflects a number of accomplishments in such 
areas as day care, health services, and the consolidation 
of Admission, Special Admissions, Financial Aid and Upward 
Bound under one administrative head. Moreover, much of the 
problem has been one of inadequate resources to hire studer t 
service personnel, and the campus responded to this problen 
in its FY 1974 budget by requesting all of the positions 
recommended by the Gage Report. 

"Nonetheless, we are concerned that the report does 
not contain sufficient evaluation of current student ser- 
vice programs and we need more information about the; pre- 
sent structure and the scope of the need for change. 

"With the move to Columbia Point imminent and the 
likelihood that the 1974 budget will provide a significantly 
increased number of positions for student services, it 
becomes all the more urgent that steps be taken to create 
a viable structure for these services. 

"The campus report is least complete in the areas of 
advising and counseling. We ask, therefore, that the 
campus take immediate steps to develop a full report on 
activities and plans in these areas, evaluating current 
structure and relating articulated plans to anticipated 
needs. The recommendations bf the Student Activities 
Committee and the Gage Committee, especially in regard to 
minority students, should be explicitly considered in this 
process.

"In particular, the planning process should examine: 

— Redefinition of advising and counseling roles to com 
bine functions, stress outreach and preventive 
emphases, involve appropriate academic relationships 
and bring in student participation; 

— Creative use of existing and expected vacancies in a 
variety of areas to assist in the improvement of 
advising and counseling; 

— The appropriate mix between campuswide services and 
those offered at the college level, aiming to avoid 
duplication of bureaucracy where possible; and 

— Adequate supervision of the hiring process for all 
new positions. 

"While we are immediately concerned with advising and 
counseling, we shall also be focusing major attention in the coming 
months on the full range of student problems. We ask accordingly 
that the campus also begin a longer range examination of its struc- 
ture, policies and needs in the rest of the areas of student service, 
with special emphasis on admissions, financial aid, health services 
and day care. 

"The Committee would like the President to direct — 
either himself or through someone in his office — and the Acting Chan- 
cellor and the incoming Chancellor to make a more concerted effort 
in this important area." 

President Wood noted that the Boston campus has made pro- 
gress with reorganization and the budget situation and now should 
turn to the issues of structure and the role definition of the Chan- 
cellor, particularly around Columbia Point. 

Trustee Ladd conveyed his concern about the UM/Boston 
report on student services as being a collection of memos requesting 
money and personnel rather than evaluating current programs and pro- 
posing new methods. However, Trustee Kelly assured him that more 
comprehensive reports will be available soon. The President added 
that Trustee Rowland's report does not imply approval of the present 
level of student services at UM/Amherst or UM/Worcester. It is 
intended that adoption of the statement by the Trustees at this time 
will make it a University-wide assignment. Chairman Rowland concurred 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt the Statement on Student Services at DM/ 
Boston, revised above, as Document T73-145, with 
the understanding that its recommendations apply 
on a University-wide basis.

Trustee Gordon, Chairman of the Committee on Government and 
University Relations, stated that a meeting had been held with Mr. 
Cass to discuss current legislative bills. 

As delegate to the Board of Higher Education, Trustee 
Gordon reported discussion by the BHE regarding tuition; also, that 
an affirmative stand has been taken on the open university. 

Chairman Healey requested approval of several UM/ Amherst 
Personnel Actions previously considered by the Committee on Faculty 
and Educational Policy and circulated to the Trustees. On motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions, UM/ 
Amherst, involving tenure as detailed in Document 
T73-144. 

It was further 

VOTED ; That every personnel action shall be subject to 

the policies and procedures now in effect as sub- 
sequently amended, revised, added to, or repealed 
by the Board of Trustees with respect to profes- 
sional personnel under provisions of Chapter 75 
of the General Laws as amended by Chapter 648, 1962. 
The classification, salary range, and descriptive 
job specification for each position to which a 
member of the professional staff is hereby appointed, 
promoted, transferred, or determined shall be as 
hereafter determined by the Board of Trustees or 
under their authority. 

The Chairman then proposed Acceptance of the Gift of a Gol f 
Cart from the Family of Frank L. Boyden . He expressed the apprecia- 



tion of the Board. Dr. Boyden had used this vehicle at Deerfield 
Academy and at his summer home in New Hampshire. 

Trustee John Boyden responded that the Boyden family hopes 
there will be an appropriate use for the golf cart in the Athletic 
Department at UM/ Amherst. Chancellor Bromery informed him that the 
cart has been licensed and insured and will be used for the golf 
program on the Amherst campus. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To acknowledge with gratitude the gift from Mrs. 
Helen C. Boyden and her family Elizabeth, John, 
and Theodore of the electric-powered golf cart 
that was used so fondly at Deerfield by our late 
Honorary Chairman and colleague Frank L. Boyden.

In Recognition of Student Trustee, UM/ Amherst, Lawrence R .

a Trustee, Chairman Healey spoke highly of his service to the Board 
over the past year and conveyed the appreciation of the Trustees. 

Trustee Boyden suggested that a brief summary outline with 
ecommended action (not more than two pages) be attached to all lengthy 
report documents sent to the Trustees to assist the Board in digesting 
:he large volume of written material it receives. It was suggested 
that such summary digests be prepared by the originating department 
Dr agency and be attached to the basic document when forwarded through 
channels for ultimate Trustee review and action.

The minutes of the previous meeting were presented for 
approval. Upon motibn made and seconded, it was

Chairman Healey announced that, due to the large number of 
persons present interested in the proposed parking fee at the UM/ 
Amherst campus, the report of the Committee on Finance would be con- 
sidered first. 

Chairman Pumphret said that the Committee had discussed anji 
acted on the Report of Investment Counsel . Regarding the University 
Position on Honeywell Investment (DOC. T73-155), they considered a 
request from the Mt. Toby Friends, Quakers, to support the proposal 
by Clergy and Laity Concerned that the certificate of incorporation 
be amended to prevent Honeywell from developing or producing anti- 
personnel weapons. The company's position is that they have not 
produced antipersonnel weapons since January 1972. After carefully 
reviewing a comprehensive analysis by the Investor Responsibility 
Research Center, Inc., the Committee agreed not to support the positibn 
in the Stockholder Proposal.

(DOC. T73-158) 



The final item recommended by the Committee was Proposed 
Parking Fees, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-158) , basically representing the 
proposal of the Transportation and Parking Council. The parking 
problem on the Amherst campus stems from the fact that only about 
7,500 usable parking spaces are available for more than 15,000 
registered vehicles, most of which are used by commuting faculty, 
staff, and students. Chairman Pumphret reiterated his willingness 
(as recorded in the minutes of the Committee on Finance, April 23, 
1973) to discuss the fees with the Mass. State Employees Association 
(MSEA) . He noted that a communication had been received from that 
group as well as the Professional Association (PA/UMA) . Numerous 
objections have been received including a petition from Local #1776, 
AFSCME, AFL-CIO. He suggested that action be deferred to permit the 
scheduling of hearings. 

Chancellor Bromery stated that, as a result of discussions 
with Chairman Healey, President Wood, and Trustee Pumphret over the 
past few days, he has requested that action on this item be deferred 
to afford the campus time for consultation with the various objectors 
He commended Vice Chancellors Gage and Campion for their diligent 
participation in discussions and urged all involved to conduct them- 
selves in a "civil and courteous manner." 

Chairman Healey, while personally endorsing the proposal, 
agreed with Mr. Pumphret that consideration should be given to the 
MSEA's contention that the fees are a negotiable item under collectiv|e 
bargaining, and that all parties should have an opportunity to be 
heard by the Board. Dr. Abrams urged that cost comparisons re park- 
ing fees be obtained for other institutions and industries in 
Western Massachusetts. 

It was agreed that, at the conclusion of today's business, 
this meeting of the Board of Trustees would be recessed until May 25, 
at a time to be announced or such earlier date as might be deemed 
appropriate, for the purpose of considering further the proposed UM/ 
Amherst parking fee schedule and any other matters on the agenda.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

On invitation from Chairman Healey, President Wood reported 
that Secretary Cronin will be defending the budget for education 
jefore the House Ways and Means Committee on May 7. He noted a major 
development in the relationship between the public and private 
sectors of higher education in the formation of a forum for discussion 
of the possible mutual use of graduate programs and other common areas 
The President added that, although the Commonwealth has much to 
accomplish in this direction, the resulting report will testify to th£ 
healthy status of the University over the past ten years." The 
Board will also receive a study from the Committee for Economic 
Development on the national situation in the areas of finance, manage-j- 
nent, and organization of universities. 

Chancellor Bromery, UM/Amherst, announced the official move 
of the Chemistry Department today to its new quarters. 

Chairman Healey stated that a fifth draft of the Revision 
of the Bylaws (DOC. T73-031) of the Board as finally approved by the 



Executive Committee will be circulated soon for review and comment. 
The revision incorporates changes required for consonance with the 
newly adopted Governance Document and other procedural policies 
effected since the present bylaws were adopted in 1966. Formal 
acceptance will take place in June or August. 

In line with the vote of the Board on May 10, 1972, that 
a full evaluation of Off-campus Recruitment, UM/Boston (DOC. T73-147) 
ae made at the end of one year in terms of effectiveness and campus 
acceptance, Acting Chancellor Hamilton reported favorably. He 
requested an extension of the policy for another year. On motion mad£ 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the off-campus recruitment policy for the UM/ 
Boston campus, as adopted by the Board of Trustees 
on May 10, 1972, for a one-year period, be extended 
for an additional year. 

Trustee Troy, Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, reported that the Committee had reviewed in detail 
all aspects of restoring ROTC Credit, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-124B). 
They were satisfied as to the quality of courses offered and the level 
of enrollments making the program feasible. Mr. Troy noted that, if 
the Committee's recommendation is accepted, the Board vote to rescind 
its previous action would restore credit retroactively for this 
academic year. Trustee Shaler pointed out that, as stressed by Chan- 
cellor Bromery to the Committee, this vote would return to the campus 
academic responsibility for ROTC courses. Chairman Healey expressed 
concern that the faculty strive to maintain its responsibility for 
sound academic judgment in its recommendations to the Board, and keep 
such reversals of policy at a very minimal level. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED: To rescind the vote of May 10, 1972, accepting the 

action of the Faculty Senate, UM/ Amherst, terminating 
academic credit for courses taught by the Division 
of Military and Air Science; also, that credit be 
awarded retroactively for students successfully 
completing courses in the Division of Military and 
Air Science during the fall semester, 1972-73 
academic year . 

Trustees Abrams and Apostola are recorded in opposition. 

Turning to the Legal Studies Program. UM/Amherst (DOC. T73 
160), Chairman Troy noted that it should not be confused with pre- 
professional education in law in which approximately 1,000 students 
at UM/Amherst are now enrolled. On the contrary, this interdisci- 
plinary program is intended for a group of fewer than 100 students 
interested in the liberal arts study of law at the undergraduate 
level. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a 24-credit- 
hour interdisciplinary undergraduate major in 
legal studies, together with identification 
of a Program in Legal Studies, as detailed in 
DOC. T73-160. 

The Committee recommended approval of Lease of Province- 
town Playhouse for Department of Theatre, UM/Amherst, Summer of 1973 



(DOC. T73-161) . This is intended to provide professional and prac- 
tical experience to graduate students in drama in a theatre setting 
with considerable national, historical, and professional reputation. 

Dr. Knauf, Chairman, Department of Theatre, had stressed 
earlier to the Committee that this opportunity, not available on the 
Amherst campus, would enable a select group of 15 advanced students 
to train as professional theater people while maintaining the broad 
focus of the liberal arts. It is proposed to produce four plays 
during July and August 1973, both at Provincetown and on the Amherst 
campus. For the summer, 1974, external funding is anticipated with 
the addition of professional theater practitioners. 

The rental fee of $11,500 for summer 1973 is expected to 
be offset by income from the sale of tickets calculated on the basis 
of approximately 100 persons per performance, with revenue of 
$11,400 anticipated for the season. Stipends of $500 will be allowed 
each graduate student, who will return to the Amherst campus in the 
fall ready to assume greater responsibility in the Department of 
Theatre. Treasurer Johnson and President Wood both supported the 
proposed lease. 

It was then moved, seconded, and

Dr. Marshall had presented the UM/Boston tenure recommenda- 
tions to the Committee which was very impressed with the efforts of 
Deans and administrators in carrying out the new, more stringent 
policies developed this past year on both the Boston and Amherst 
campuses. President Wood had stressed that, because of increasing 
litigation in cases regarding denial of tenure accompanied by a grow- 
ing body of legal decisions , the regularizing of tenure procedures 
and notification is vitally important. 

Trustee Robertson queried whether the transfer of Susan 
Gassner to College III, which has proposed a nontenured pattern, 
provides protection of her tenure award. President Wood replied in 
the affirmative that, if she transferred back into College I or II, 
she would automatically have tenure. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; To approve the list of tenure recommendations, 
UM/Boston, as detailed in DOC. T73-163). 

Chairman Troy then requested approval of the Use of Title

Trustee Troy then proposed the approval of degrees at the 
Amherst and Boston campuses. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve undergraduate degrees , graduate degrees , 
and degrees awarded by the Division of Continuing 
Education, UM/Amherst; also, the undergraduate and 
graduate degrees, UM/Boston, to be awarded on May 26, 
1973, at UM/Amherst and on June 7, 1973, at UM/ 
Boston, subject to certification by the appropriate 
campus offices of lists of eligible recipients. 

Reporting for the Committee on Buildings and Grounds, Chaii 
man Knowles gave a detailed summary of Trustee Haigis's service to 
the multicampus University as former Chairman of the Committee which 
had accorded him formal recognition at its recent meeting. A copy 
of the citation has been provided to each member of the Board. 

Dean Soutter had introduced the Discussion of Proposed 
Parking Facilities, UM/Worcester (DOC. T73-149) for the Committee's 
preliminary information. Further careful study will be required 
before actual construction of a parking facility for use by students , 
employees, patients, and visitors to the Medical School and hospital] 
President Wood emphasized the different requirements for transporta- 
tion on the three campuses: UM/Amherst has instituted a bussing 
program to reduce vehicular traffic on that campus; UM/Boston will 
basically be a commuter campus with parking fees to subsidize a 
shuttle-bus service; and UM/Worcester is planning for self -supporting 
parking facilities. Harold Roth, Architectural Consultant, will be 
reporting to the Committee on the various components of the proposed 
UM/Worcester facility, starting with an 800-space parking garage to 
be expanded later to 1,800 spaces. 

Regarding Columbia Point Campus Transportation, UM/Boston 
(DOC. T73-154), President Wood had informed the Committee that his 
office is proceeding toward a scheduled September opening of the 
Columbia Point campus. Discussions are in progress with the Depart- 
ment of Transportation and the MBTA regarding automobile access and 
bus service for the campus. The President reviewed for the Committee 
the various arrangements under consideration including a related fee 
structure to provide sufficient income to subsidize the student transit 
trip. He requested Planning Officer Littlefield, UM/Amherst, to 
provide the Committee with an interim report on the DOT bus operation 
at UM/Amherst. 

Treasurer Johnson had stated that a formal request should 
be made to the MBTA for transit bus service between Columbia Station 
and the campus. He mentioned several options. Both the Treasurer 
and University Counsel Searson recommended no action on a Transporta- 
tion Trust Fund until more information is provided on the use of the 
monies accrued by such a fund. It was stressed that work must pro- 
ceed on the Columbia Point transportation problem "with the utmost 
urgency."

Turning to the Approval of the Metes and Bounds of the Land 
to be Transferred to the Town of Amherst for the Purpose of Erecting 



a Fire Station (DOC. T73-150) , Chairman Knowles noted that Planning 
Officer Littlefield had detailed the area for the Committee. Trea- 
surer Johnson stated that it is on East Pleasant Street near the pro- 
posed bypass intersection from which point trucks would have rapid 
access to the Amherst campus as well as the town. On motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To agree to convey, subject to appropriate legislative 
action by the General Court, to the Town of Amherst 
for purposes of construction of a fire station, a 
parcel of land consisting of 3.852 acres of land 
bounded and described in detail in DOC. T73-150. 

The Committee is also recommending Approval of the Working 
Drawings and Specifications: Modular Project, UM/ Amherst (DOC. T73- 



151) . Originally planned for classroom and/or office space at the 
time UM/ Amherst was expanding rapidly, these units were also foreseen 
as "swing space" for temporary use while various permanent buildings 
are being renovated. Delays have now been resolved and, in addition 
to approval of the working drawings and specifications, the retention 
of Site C and a reduction in the budget are also recommended. Dr 
Bromery and Treasurer Johnson described the three site locations (AD, 
C, and J). Trustee Apostola was assured that plans to avoid the 
destruction of trees and brush at Site AD are being made. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the working drawings and specifications 
for the purchase and installation of modular class- 
room and office components and certain site develop- 
ment, foundations, and utilities connections at UM/ 
Amherst in accordance with plans and specifications 
on file with the Planning Officer, UM/Amherst. 

It was further 

VOTED : To authorize the Planning Office, UM/Amherst, to 
convey to the Bureau of Building Construction the 
concern of the Board of Trustees that all reasonable 
action be taken to avoid the elimination of Site C, 
proposed for location of modular buildings. 

It was then 

VOTED ; To authorize a reduction in the furnishings , equip- 
ment, and partitioning budget of the modular projects 
from $350,000 to $200,000, as detailed in DOC. T73-151. 

Trustee Apostola is recorded in opposition.

University Library, Graduate Research Center (Phase I), Tobin 



Hall (including Tennis Courts) , Horticultural Research (Belchertown ) , 
Herter Hall, and Thompson Hall, UM/ Amherst (DOC. T73-152) , many of 
which the Committee had toured with Planning Officer Littlefield just 
previous to their meeting. President Wood had informed the Committee 
that The University Library, the Graduate Research Center, and the 
Fine Arts Center have been so named by vote of the Board on May 31, 
1968, by reference to DOC. T68-081. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded, and

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At Chairman Healey's invitation, Treasurer Johnson explaine 
the proposed Agreement re Use of South Deerfield Property by Depart- 
ment of Veterinary and Animal Science, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-171) . 



Since the planting season coincides with this recent offer, it is 
necessary to consider it immediately. The Treasurer explained that 
the property is adjacent to land already owned by the University and 
is in the process of transfer to the new owners, John A. and Damarist 
T. Summerlin. Unfortunately, no funds were available to make the 
actual purchase when it was offered recently. On motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer of the University, 

Kenneth W. Johnson, to execute an agreement whereby 
the Department of Veterinary and Animal Science 
of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst would 
cultivate silage corn on certain lands of Eva E. 
Ward of South Deerfield, Franklin County, Massa- 
chusetts for use and benefit of the University, in 
return for which the University would seed and 
cultivate pasture grass on another portion of the 
Ward land. The term of the agreement would be for 
the growing season from May 1, 1973, through 
October 31, 1973. 

A vote was then requested on three Personnel Actions, UM / 
Boston (DOC. T73-169) previously reviewed by the Trustees. Presi- 



dent Wood noted that the adjective Commonwealth precedes the title 
on all of the appointments. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions, UM/ 
Boston, with Tenure, as detailed in DOC. T73-169. 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to 

the policies and procedures now in effect as sub- 
sequently amended, revised, added to, or repealed 
by the Board of Trustees with respect to professional 
personnel under provisions of Chapter 75 of the 
General Laws as amended by Chapter 648, 1962. The 
classification, salary range, and descriptive job 
specification for each position to which a member of 
the professional staff is hereby appointed, promoted, 
transferred, or determined shall be as hereafter 
determined by the Board of Trustees or under their 
authority. 

It was then 

VOTED : That the Classification of Position Titles under 
the Provisions of Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962 
shall be fixed in a weekly salary range from a 
minimum to a maximum or fixed at a specific weekly

salary rate which shall not be changed except by 
vote of the Board of Trustees and such classification 
shall not be designated by any job group number or 
grade. 

It was also 

VOTED : That, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 
648 of the Acts of 1962, the position title in the 
Professional Staff detailed in DOC. T73-170 is 
classified at a weekly salary rate specified after 
the title of the position subject to subsequently 
being amended, revised, added to, or repealed by 
the Board of Trustees under the provisions of said 
Chapter 648. 

Chairman Healey then highly commended the service to the 
Board and to the University of student Trustees Kelly and Ladd over 
the past year. He presented each with a Certificate of Appreciation, 

Acting Chancellor Hamilton, UM/Boston, mentioned that the 
Trustees have been sent a Report of Progress at the Columbia Point 
Campus (DOC. T73-173). Within a few days he will send a report to th|e 
President and the Board, regarding the concerns of the Dorchester- 
Columbia Point-South Boston neighborhoods. This will permit careful 
Trustee consideration and appropriate discussion preliminary to Board 
action in June. 

Chairman Healey welcomed Trustee Apostola to the first 
Board meeting, following his election as President of the Student 
Senate, UM/Amherst. 

On motion made by President Wood and duly seconded, it was 

VOTED ; That this meeting of the Board of Trustees, duly 

called and convened for 2:00 p.m., May 2, 1973, be 
recessed until 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 25, 1973, 
at which time further consideration may be given to 
the item on Parking Fees, UM/Amherst and any other 
business on the agenda. 

The meeting was recessed at 3:20 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
)een complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pre- 
sent and acting throughout, the recessed meeting of May 2, 1973, was 
reconvened, in the absence of Chairman Healey, by Acting Chairman 
Uroce at 2:15 p.m. 

President Wood requested that the Amherst Chancellor address; 
the proposed parking plan, UM/Amherst, introduced by Trustee Pumphret 
it the May 2, 1973, meeting which had been considered by the Finance 
Committee. 

Chancellor Bromery read the following statement to the Board 

On May 2nd the Finance Committee recommended to the Board 
of Trustees that they defer action until May 25th on the 
proposed UM/Amherst Integrated Parking and Transportation 
System including the schedule of revised fees in order that 
an open meeting of the Finance Committee could be held to 
hear comment and opinion by representative organizations as 
well as individual staff, students and faculty. 

The remarks and opinions by representatives and individuals 
in this lengthy but productive meeting on May 15th furnished 
my staff with many useful insights and points of view that 
had not been dealt with adequately in the several previous 
presentations and open meeting conducted on this very com- 
plex problem that involves not only parking but safety, 
traffic, and campus environment as well. 

Since that time, my personal staff has given the highest 
priority attention to the suggestions and concerns voiced at 
that meeting. We have several modifications under compre- 
hensive review at this time, and I request the Board to 
defer action at least until June 6th. At that time we will 



3701 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

have had an opportunity to discuss the proposed modifica*! 
tions with representative campus groups, and will present 
to the Trustees a modified plan for their action. 

At this time I would like to express my sincere thanks to 
the Trustees for the careful attention and time they have 
devoted to this problem and in particular, I would like to 
express my appreciation to the organizational representa^ 
tives and individual staff members, students, and faculty 
who attended the May 15th meeting for the way in which they 
presented their remarks . It is such conduct that promotes 
the open hearing process as a viable part of campus gover- 
nance . 

The Chancellor added that the campus administration is stilfL 
in the process of reviewing the parking plan and were considering 
the recommendations and suggestions made at the various hearings 
held on the matter. 

The Acting Chairman recognized Trustee Apostola, who read 
the following letter to the Board: 

Many recent events on this campus have lessened the admin- 
istration's credibility in the eyes of the students, 
faculty, and staff of this University. The greatest con- 
tributions to this effect have been the administration's 
continuing effort to steamroll their parking fee proposal 
while substantially ignoring the community. 

The very manner in which the administration has had the 
program drawn up causes us to seriously question their 
intentions. This is evidenced by the fact that the members 
of the University Parking and Transportation Council were 
directed not to inform the community regarding their 
deliberation until a time chosen by our (?) administration- 
two working days before it went to this Board. Their 
secrecy has given rise to many rumors (such as "the 
stickers for cars have already been printed and are ready 
to be issued"). These rumors have created a situation 
q where most of us feel that the outcome is predestined 

regardless of our input. Since the public release of the 
administration's plan, the community has raised many 
questions. Most have been unanswered, but in the few cases 
when the administration has chosen to answer the responses 
were either vague, indifferent, inconsistent across admin- 
istrators, inconsistent over time by the same administra- 
tors, or some combination of the above. 

Further, these administrators have chosen to stubbornly 
stand behind their proposal even after meetings and hear- 
ings at which members of this community have effectively 
attacked the plan as discriminatory, technically deficient,

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

poorly thought out, and self-defeating in its lack of 
ability to raise funds (their own budget shows a deficit 
of over $300,000 after only two years of operation). 
Additionally, the tactics which a handful of administrators 
have employed to "railroad" their proposal through the 
community have infuriated students, faculty and staff alike 
We sincerely hope that the Board of Trustees will not be 
taken in by their actions. These administrators have 
seriously underestimated the feelings of the community on 
this issue and the extent to which we are willing to resist 
such an arbitrary scheme! 

The actions of these administrators have caused great con- 
cern regarding the consequences of this plan since it 
appears to be only the tip of the iceberg. The reactions 
of these same administrators to our questions and criti- 
cisms of their plan cause us to doubt the "good faith" of 
our administration, and have very seriously destroyed the 
credibility of this administration with us. 

It is very sad that such actions, by those who are adminis- 
tering this campus, have so shaken our confidence that we 
feel it necessary to remind the Board that they are the 
Trustees for the whole University. Any hasty actions which 
ignore the concerns of the whole community will provide 
great injustices and contribute to the growing tensions 
created by the administration. An injustice once created 
is difficult to correct. The Board must prevent this 
injustice. We sincerely hope that the Board will act to 
prevent this error and help restore confidence in the admin 
istration by 'providing both a suitable cooling off period 
and the opportunity for meaningful community inputs in 
this and future decisions . 

The preceding statement was signed by the following persons|: 
Carol A. Drew, president, Local 1776 AFSCME, AFL-CIO; Bernard K. 
Turner, president, UMEA-MSEA; David E. Booker, speaker, Student 
Senate, UM/ Amherst; Howard 0. Brogan, president, MSP; John A. Mullen, 
president, Graduate Student Senate, UM/ Amherst; Anthony J. Tartaglia, 
Jr., president, Commuter Assembly; Robert R. Wellman, Secretary, 
Faculty Senate, UM/ Amherst; and Cadwell L. Ray, president, Local AAUP 

At the conclusion of the letter, Dr. Croce suggested that 
these remarks may have been unnecessary in lieu of Chancellor Brom- 
ery's earlier statement. 

President Wood noted that Secretary McCartney has kept the 
Trustees informed throughout on the progress of this matter. He 
added that he had received a letter from Senator Olver expressing 
concern over this problem. He will share it with the Trustees. 

In response to a question from Trustee Abrams, Chancellor 
Bromery reported that he did not know whether any new plan would 
first be submitted to the Finance Committee. The President 



I 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

explained that Chairman Pumphret of the Finance Committee has been 
kept informed during the entire proceeding. 

Acting Chairman Croce noted that the proposed revisions to 
:he Board of Trustees Bylaws (DOC. T73-031) were distributed at the 
neeting for Trustee review and consideration. 

No vote was proposed at this time. 

Secretary McCartney explained that this is the latest draft 
<bf the proposed Bylaws. He added that the University Governance 
Document (DOC. T73-098) and the statement on Procedures Governing 
Appearances Before the Trustees were also included with the Bylaws as 
convenient source of reference to related material. 

The Acting Chairman then informed the Trustees that the 
University's Counsel, Mr. Searson, reported that it was necessary to 
i:ake a vote on the effective date of the Statement on University 
Governance (DOC. T73-098) as approved by the Board of Trustees on 
jipril 4, 1973. The President asked the faculty representative from 
i:he Amherst campus, Professor Burke, if the date agreed upon by the 
] 'an- University Study Group was July 1, 1973. Professor Burke 
responded in the affirmative. 

Chancellor Bromery added that the Amherst campus has held 
ljieetings in order to devise implementation plans for the University 
(governance document. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; That the Board of Trustees Statement on University 
Governance (DOC. T73-098) , as voted by the Board 
of Trustees on April 4, 1973, become effective on 
July 1, 1973. 

Trustee Shaler disclosed two informal items of interest 
Regarding the Commencement on May 26. First, Trustee Haigis' daughter 
was graduating in the ceremony. Second, Mrs. Clair Clove, a neighbor 
of Mr. Shaler, entered the University in 1946. She then married, put 
her husband through school, and has come back to graduate with Depart- 
mental honors in the School of Education. 

After some general announcements regarding the Commencement 
]j)ay Schedule, Trustee Boyden raised a question regarding the applica- 
bility of the letter previously read by Trustee Apostola. 

Mr. Apostola responded that he felt that the letter should 
itay on the record for future reference. General discussion followed 
q>n this matter. 

Trustee Gordon queried as to the author of the letter. Mr. 
Apostola stated that he thought it was a joint effort. Mr. Gordon 
J'elt that the substance of the letter was rather inflammatory. He

said it did not reflect the cooperative effort now underway on cam- 
pus to resolve the parking problem. He added that the authors should 
have exercised more care in their rhetoric. 

Trustee Shaler reminded the Board that Trustee Apostola 
had only agreed to read the letter and should not be responsible for 
its interpretation. 

Chancellor Bromery noted that the campus administration 
has recognized that the parking issue is a difficult one that might 
cause hardship on some persons. He pointed out, however, that, 
without a plan, those persons would have suffered more. He added 
that the administration had had a difficult job in selling their 
plan to the campus community. 

Professor Burke, representing the UM/ Amherst Faculty 
Senate, pointed out that neither the Senate nor its Rules Committee 
had voted to endorse that letter. 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:40 p.m.

At this time, a vote was requested on several Personnel

duly seconded, it was 



UM/Boston — 
Proposed 
Statement on 
Columbia Point 
(DOC. T73-205) 



VOTED ; To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions, 
Office of the President, with tenure where 
applicable, as detailed in DOC. T73-208; also, 
the Classification of Position Titles, Office 
of the President, as detailed in DOC. T73-209. 

Chairman Healey, on behalf of the Executive Committee, then 
turned to the Proposed Statement on Columbia Point, UM/Boston (DOC. 
T73-205). He recommended that it be adopted in principle, subject to 
further comment from the Trustees and members of the Dorchester- 
Columbia Point community. He noted that contact had been made with 
26 community groups. The Committee has also studied the Dorchester- 
Columbia Point Task Force Report (DOC. T73-097) and the Campus Impact 
Study Group Report (DOC. T73-177) . In keeping with the Board's 
policy of open discussion and participation, Chairman Healey turned 
to Trustee Snowden, Chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee on University- 
Community Relations, who introduced three representatives of the 
Dorchester-Columbia Point community who wished to make comments. 

The first speaker, Mrs. Joan Matthews, Chairperson of the 
Dorchester-Columbia Point Task Force, urged that the University build 
low- income housing for both residents and students, preferably on the 
campus. She distributed a case list reflecting rental pressures in 
the area. She requested definite answers to questions raised in the 
Task Force Report, none of which, in her opinion, was answered con- 
cretely in the Impact Study Report. Although not objecting to the 
proposed Trustee statement, Mrs. Matthews did not feel it "says that 
much." Chairman Healey pointed out that the Board has been trying 
unsuccessfully for three years to resolve the transportation stale- 
mate and provide adequate commuter access to the campus . 

Mrs. Matthews asked that the University ally itself with 
the Dorchester-Columbia Point community in its efforts to secure low 
income housing and force conformance to legal restrictions concerning 
rentals. Both Chairman Healey and Trustee Snowden assured her that 
the Board and the University are deeply concerned about these and 
other related problems which require cooperative efforts to resolve. 

The second speaker, Mrs. Thelma Peters, a long-time former 
resident of Columbia Point, called attention to the heterogeneity of 
the peninsular community, the one catalyst being eligibility for low- 
cost housing. Although agreeing that housing is needed, she did not 
want a project built on the campus nor on the Pumping Station site. 
Also, she urged improvement of existing residences. Mrs. Peters sug- 
gested, on a question from Trustee Apostola, that the University seek 
information from recognized groups, such as the Columbia Point 
Development Council and the Anti-Poverty Action Committee, and work 
with them on mutual problems; i.e., housing transportation, programs 
for young people, etc. She replied to Trustee Shearer that a com- 



I 



I

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

munity newsletter would help fill the communication gap, and that 
cooperation from the University in preparing it would help; to 
Trustee Troy, that job training opportunities would also be helpful; 
and to Trustee Knowles , that emotionalism is not magnifying the prob- 
lems. 

Finally, Mr. James Mallen, a member of the Dorchester- 
Columbia Point Task Force, reiterated the request that the University 
concern itself with the problems of housing and transportation as set 
forth in the two reports already prepared. He strongly urged coop- 
eration with the community and the City of Boston. Replying to 
Trustee Cagle, he described the proposed draft statement as "one of 
progress"; to Trustee Boyden, he proposed intense recruiting of stu- 
dents from the Boston area to minimize need for student housing; 
also, offering employment opportunities to area residents, and main- 
taining good rapport throughout the community by mutual representa- 
tion and communication. 

Responding to Chairman Healey's request for comment from 
the Board, Trustee Croce proposed adoption of the statement in prin- 
ciple, subject to elaboration by the Executive Committee after fur- 
ther consultation, particularly with the Ad Hoc Committee on Univer- 
sity-Community Relations. Trustee Snowden added that particular 
attention should be given to the points raised today. President Wood 
pointed out that the draft statement is an important step at one 
level of communication with the neighborhoods . It should not be con- 
sidered a conclusive effort. 

Secretary Cronin, as Governor Sargent's representative, 
requested that the Executive Committee further define and clarify the 
statement in the commitment to (1) a commuter university, (2) use of 
mass transit, (3) reduction of automobile parking space, and (4) 
developing relationships further with state and city housing agencies 
President Wood assured him that more specificity will evolve, partic- 
ularly in the transportation area, as work progresses with other 
agencies. 

Responding to a query from Trustee Shaler, Secretary Cronin 
said that the Governor is willing to have a liaison person work with 
state and city officers and the Board of Trustees to resolve the prob- 
lems;: also, that a comprehensive study of transportation in the City 
of Boston is already underway. He proposed that UM/Boston give top 
priority to serving Boston and Greater Boston, rather than all of 
eastern Massachusetts. Trustee Apostola pointed out that,, if UM/ 
Boston is to teach others how to deal with urban issues, it must firs 
prove itself capable of solving its own problems. Chairman Healey 
declared that this will require the full cooperation of many other 
groups; also, that the Governor's support, as stated by Secretary 
Cronin, is most welcome.

(DOC. T73-205) in principle, subject to elaboration 
by the Executive Committee after further consultation, 
particularly with the Ad Hoc Committee on University- 
Community Relations , and with attention given to the 
comments made at this meeting. 



Trustee Shearer, speaking both as a member of the Trustees 
and as a resident of Columbia Point, proposed expanding the Ad Hoc 
Committee to include representatives from the concerned communities 
to provide viable access to the Board. President Wood supported the 
suggestion and stated that Trustee Snowden, the chairman of that 
committee, should determine the procedure for membership selection. 
Chairman Healey added that care must be taken that all constituencies 
are represented. 

On motion made and seconded, it was

Participation in the Faculty Dependent Exchange Program in Cooperatioh 



with New England Land-Grant Institutions (DOC. T73-184) . This plan

sional staff for several years; it includes all campuses of the Univef: 
sity. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the President of the University, Dr. 

Robert C. Wood, to enter into an agreement extending

The Committee recommended that the University Enter into 
Agreements with the Federal Extension Service, U.S.D.A . (DOC. T73- 



L86) to provide certain retiring Cooperative Extension employees with 
an opportunity to enroll in the Federal Health Benefits and Life 
Insurance Programs. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To authorize the Director of the Cooperative Extension 
Service, Dr. Arless A. Spielman, and the Treasurer 
of the University, Kenneth W. Johnson, to enter into 
agreements with the Federal Extension Service, U.S. 
Department of Agriculture for administering the Federal 
Employees Health Benefits Act of 1959, and for handling 
the administrative and fiscal provisions of the Federal 
Employees Group Life Insurance Act of 1954. 

On recommendation from Acting Chancellor Hamilton and Vice 
Chancellor Marshall, the Committee approved the Tenure Recommendation 
JM/Boston (DOC. T73-197) for Associate Professor Pauline Maier. On 



notion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the award of tenure to Dr. Pauline Maier, 
UM/Boston, effective September 1, 1974. 

The Committee considered the Proposed Merger of the School 
of Nursing and the Department of Public Health to the School of Health 



Sciences, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-188) . After lengthy discussion and in 



recognition of pan-University and Commonwealth studies underway, it 
^as agreed that comments should be sought from UM/Boston and UM/ 
Worcester before a decision is made. 

The Proposed Merger of the Department of Food Science and 
Technology and the Department of Nutrition and Food to the Department 



jf Food Science and Nutrition, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-187) was recom- 



nended by the Committee. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the merger of the Department of Food 
Science and Technology and the Department of 
Nutrition and Food as the Department of Food 
Science and Nutrition in the College of Food and 
Natural Resources, UM/Amherst. 

President Wood then presented three votes taken by the Com- 
mittee concerning Tenure Recommendations, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-191) , 
loting thorough discussion and justification, particularly in connec- 
:ion with Professor Gabriel Horvay. Trustee Robertson stated that 
additional information supplied in support of the award of tenure to 
rofessor Horvay has removed his reservations. On motion made and 
seconded, it was

VOTED : To approve the offers of new appointments with 

tenure at UM/Amherst, as listed in DOC. T73-191;

Robert Griffith, Erwin Staub, and Richard 
Tedeschi, UM/Amherst. 

It was further 

VOTED ; To approve the award of tenure to Professor 

Gabriel Horvay, UM/Amherst, effective September 1, 
1973. 

Trustee Apostola is recorded in opposition to the vote on 
Professor Horvay. 

Trustee Rowland, Chairman of the Committee on Student 
Activities, stated that Vice Chancellor Gage and his Special Assistant, 
Dr. Preston, had reviewed their report, Student Affairs Division Goals 



and Accomplishments, 1972-73 (DOC. T73-172), and discussed their 



objectives for enlarging the counseling and advising program at UM/ 
Amherst. A center for familiarizing commuter students with Universit 
resources will be a fall item. At UM/Boston, the Search Committee 
for a Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs is moving forward. 

Chairman Rowland also noted that, because of the recent 
lowering of the legal age for public purchase of alcoholic beverages, 
it will be necessary to revise the University's Policy on Alcoholic 
Beverages (DOC. T73-034). 



Reporting for the Committee on Buildings and Grounds, Chair- 
nan Knowles recommended approval of the Motor Vehicle Regulations , 
1973-74, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-178) . She observed that, with increased 



eligibility to authorize towing, the regulations will be enforced 
nore stringently. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Motor Vehicle Regulations, 1973-74, 
UM/Amherst, as detailed in DOC. T73-178.

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the re-signing of the UM/Amherst campus 
as described in DOC. T72-130 (revised 1973), said 
document being on file in the District Court of

Chairman Knowles noted details of the Status Report on the 
Move to Columbia Point, UM/Boston, which is tentatively planned to 



start in July. Rapid transit negotiations are underway with the 
MBTA: also, the MDC will need Trustee approval for certain grading 
work on University property. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

On the next item, Approval of the Space Program for Build- 
ing 080/2, UM/Boston (DOC. T73-179) , Chairman Knowles summarized the 



changes in the development of Building 080/2 from a science building 
to a multi-purpose academic and student service facility. The Com- 
mittee had also discussed the necessity for conforming charges for 
services rendered on all three campuses. In addition, Trustee Knowle 
reported Acting Chancellor Hamilton's statement that additional facil 
ities are needed to provide full University capability for an enroll- 
ment of 12,500. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To accept the program for the Arts and Sciences 
Building, UM/Boston (Building 080/2), with the 
understanding (1) that the final project in build- 
ing envelopes will be reviewed by the Buildings 
and Grounds Committee when they are developed; 

(2) that further refinement of internal space 
arrangements in Building 080/2 will go forward; and 

(3) that the President's Office will undertake a 
comparative analysis of University-wide space 
policy in the areas of housing, parking, and stu- 
dent activities, as illustrated in the space program 
for Building 080/2. 

Trustee Rowland noted that the program for Building 080/2 
(DOC. T73-179) refers to space for advising and counseling services, 
She requested that the Committee on Buildings and Grounds discuss 
plans for these services with Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Marshall. 

Presented next was the Status of Extensions of Leases for 
Buildings at the Park Square Campus, UM/Boston (DOC. T73-180) , in 
the interest of maximizing the use of the new space at Columbia 
Point. Dr. Hamilton reported that there is not apparent need for 
any presently leased building after the end of February 1974. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To ratify all extensions of leases for the Boston 

campus executed from 1972 to date under the direction 
of the Chancellor or Acting Chancellor, and that it 
delegate to the Chancellor or Acting Chancellor 
authority to execute all further extensions for 
1973, provided, however, that said further extensions 
be first approved by the President of the University. 

Regarding the Proposed Parking Facility, UM/Worcester (DOC. 
T73-182), Chairman Knowles emphasized the very different parking 
demands at the Medical School from those on the other campuses. The 
facility will function 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

fee of $47.00, which includes $45.50 for the Student 
Senate Tax and $1.50 for the Distinguished Visitors 
Program, be established as the Student Activities 
Fee for University Undergraduate Students on the 
Amherst campus. 

It is noted that this reduces the Campus Center Fee to 
$52.00, as provided for in the vote of the Board on May 2, 1973. 

Chairman Pumphret also reported that the Committee has 
considered Dean Soutter's request to Use the Medical Science Building 
for Temporary Student Housing, UM/Worcester (DOC. T73-198). This 



would involve temporary conversion of the two top floors of the wing 
reserved for use by the clinical faculty, whose recruitment will be 
delayed until the hospital nears completion in about two years. 
After careful discussion, the Committee recommended that approval be 
hinged on the following conditions : 

(1) that the Buildings and Grounds Committee review and 
approve detailed plans in terms of feasibility, 
adequacy for student needs, long-range implications 
and cost;

(2) that rental rates, to be approved by the Finance 
Committee, are set so as to cover full operating 
costs and the cost of furnishings in a manner 
consistent with practice on the Amherst campus; 

(3) that it is clearly understood that this is not a 
commitment by the University to provide permanent 
student housing on or off campus in the future; 

(4) that such use is clearly within the legal authority 
of the University and meets all other applicable 
legal requirements. 

As soon as the information is available, the Finance Committee will 
bring a formal recommendation to the Board. President Wood urged 
that this be accomplished as rapidly as possible. 

Turning to the report of the Executive Committee, Chairman 
Healey requested discussion on the Proposed Revisions of the Faculty 
Senate Constitution, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-196). Professor Burke 
pointed out that the changes are intended to simplify the document, 
bring it into conformance with the new Governance document, and incor- 
porate the Graduate Council into the Faculty Senate committee struc- 
ture. This change has the concurrence of the Graduate Council and 
the Graduate faculty. On motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : To approve the Constitution of the Faculty Senate, 
UM/Amherst, as revised May 14, 1973, and as 
detailed in DOC. T73^-196. 

President Wood explained that the Proposed Constitution for 



f 



the Professional Association, UM/Amherst (PA/UMA) (DOC. T73-195) 



recognizes this nonacademic group and thus permits it to be incor- 
porated into the Governance document. On motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : To approve the Constitution of the Professional 
Association of the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst (PA/UMA) as detailed in DOC. T73-195, 
subject to later incorporation in the Governance 
Document. 

The President noted the necessity for a Proposed Vote on 
the Cos t-of -Living Increase which represents the approval of the Boarjd, 
conditional on favorable action on a cost-of-living increase for 
state employees by the Legislature and the Governor. On motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; That, in accordance with the provisions of Section 14 
of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended, and the 
provisions of Chapter 319 of the Acts of 1973 and the 
authority contained therein and all other acts 
applicable thereto, each officer and member of the

professional staff of the University of Massachusetts 
employed in a position paid in whole or in part from 
state funds under subsidiary accounts designated 01 
and 02 shall for the period beginning December 31, 
1972, have the rate of his regular salary otherwise 
paid or payable on December 30, 1972, increased by 
an amount of three and three-tenths percent. Such 
increase shall not be applied to any salary rate 
previously fixed by vote of the Trustees, or under 
authority delegated by the Trustees, for any such 
new professional employee entering the service of 
the University of Massachusetts on or after December 31, 
1972. The President of the University is hereby 
authorized to take all actions necessary or desirable 
to implement this Act and to also apply an increase 
not to exceed three and three-tenths percent to the 
regular salary in the same manner to all members of 
the professional staff and classified employees 
normally paid from other than state funds who in his 
judgment are in categories of employment equivalent 
to the intent and scope of said Chapter 319. Pro- 
vided, however, that in the case of those paid from 
institute, grant or contract funds the recommendations 
and certification of the availability of funds by the 
cognizant principal investigator or director shall be 
a prerequisite to the payment of any such increase. 

Chairman Healey then requested action on a continuing 
resolution which authorizes Fiscal Year 1974 Expenditures until the 
Legislature acts upon the Budget Request. On motion duly seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : To authorize the President to approve the expen- 
diture of state and nonstate funds by the three, 
campuses, Office of the President, and the Institute 
for Governmental Services from July 1, 1973, until 
such time as the Board of Trustees adopts the Operating 
Budget for Fiscal Year 1974. 

The approval of expenditure of state funds shall be 
consistent with the appropriate state statutes 
governing the Fiscal Year 1974 appropriation. 

The approval of expenditure of nonstate funds shall 
be consistent with the general policies established 
by the Board of Trustees governing these funds. The 
collection of fees and the expenditures of fee-based 
trust funds shall be consistent with the fee policies 
already ^approved by the Board of Trustees.

The Chairman stated that action on the Revised Bylaws ,

meeting on August 1, to ensure that all Trustees have had an ample 
opportunity to study the draft. 

A vote then was requested on Personnel Actions, UM/Amherst 
(DOC. T73-204) and the Classification of Position Titles, UM/Amherst 
(DOC. T73-193). On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions , UM/

It was further 

VOTED ; That every personnel action shall be subject to the 

policies and procedures now in effect as subsequently 
amended, revised, added to, or repealed by the 
Board of Trustees with respect to professional per- 
sonnel under provisions of Chapter 75 of the General

salary range, and descriptive job specification for 
each position to which a member of the professional 
staff is hereby appointed, promoted, transferred, 
or determined shall be as hereafter determined by 
the Board of Trustees or under their authority. 

It was then 

VOTED : That the Classification of Position Titles under 
the Provisions of Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962 
shall be fixed in a weekly salary range from a 
minimum to a maximum or fixed at a specific weekly 
salary rate which shall not be changed except by 
vote of the Board of Trustees and such classification 
shall not be designated by any job group number or

being amended, revised, added to, or repealed by

In anticipation of Mr. McCartney's declared intention to 
resign as Secretary, Board of Trustees, effective July 1, 1973, and 
on motion made and duly seconded, it was 

VOTED : To elect Dr. Franklin K. Patterson as Secretary, 
Board of Trustees, effective July 1, 1973. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Shaler noted that this was the last meeting for the 
faculty representatives and on motion duly seconded, it was 

VOTED : To thank Professor Richard Lyons, UM/Boston, and 
Professor Terence Burke, UM/ Amherst, for their 
guidance, counsel, and patience over the past year. 

Chairman Healey , under the Communications and Petitions 
igenda item, indicated that four persons (also members of the Task 
force) had requested to be heard on the Trustees' Columbia Point 
statement. He recognized Mr. Louis Finfer, a member of the Dorchester 
Tenants Action Council, who reiterated Mrs. Matthews' earlier comments 
m the basis of the reference in item (3) of the Trustee Statement 
:o "active exploration and assistance. . . to provide additional 
lousing." He urged immediate steps by the University to request 
federal or other financial aid for housing, if this is the intent of 
:he statement. President Wood assured him that the University is 
following the overall situation, but cannot yet make definite commit- 
aents. Mr. Finfer conceded that the whole problem of housing cannot 
ie solved but the impact of student housing will be lessened; also, 
le pointed out that action and substantive progress rather than 
general promises will result in better rapport. 

Replying to Trustee Abrams, Mr. Finfer stated that there 
ire 300 apartments in the Columbia Point neighborhood. There is not 
idequate housing in Dorchester to absorb many students in addition to 
the 160,000 residents. 

President Wood pointed out that the Campus Impact Study 
3roup had come to slightly different conclusions in their report from 
the Task Force. The Board will have to deal with these variations 
specifically. Trustee Shaler declared that the issues called for 
joint responsibility and working together; Mr. Finfer replied that th£ 
Jniversity must accomplish what the communities have been unable to 
io by themselves. 

The next speaker, Ms. Donna Finn, declared that it is 
mrealistic to maintain that UM/Boston at Columbia Point will "remain 
commuter institution" (item (2) of Trustee Statement). She pointed 
aut that actual or planned construction will make nearly or totally 
Impassable most of the access roads in the vicinity over the next two 
years. In addition, Ms. Finn asked that the opening of Columbia Poin£ 
je deferred until the housing and transportation facilities in the 
area can handle the anticipated impact of faculty, students, and 
staff. She also asked that area applicants be given preference for 
admission, particularly to College III. 

Mrs. Margaret Mitchell spoke about the fallacy of a 
commuter campus with no buses and no roads , evictions of families 
(legal and allegedly illegal) , and the fear that persons going to 
employment outside the area will be blocked by traffic coming into 
Columbia Point. She urged cooperation from the University in working 
on a college-oriented pilot program in the Boston schools. Acting 
Chancellor Hamilton agreed. In addition, she enumerated requests

nade in the Task Force Report, most of which have been resolved 
except the one calling for open enrollment to Boston students, 
whether ready for college or not. To this she offered a "compromise" 
Lf two equally qualified students apply, only one from Boston, the 
icceptance should go to that one. This will also be helpful toward 
reducing the transportation and housing problems . 

President Wood clarified for Mrs. Mitchell that "full 
Jniversity status" means no more than 12,500 students, but does mean 
idditional construction — that the six buildings do not represent a 
complete campus. 

Acting Chancellor Hamilton and President Wood discussed in 
letail the University's position on several items in the statement 
jhich demonstrate sincere attempts to respond to the needs and prob- 
Lems of the community. 

The fourth scheduled speaker, Samuel Mullen, when called by 
Chairman Healey, had already left the meeting. 

The meeting was adjourned at 4:30 p.m.

and other documents routinely requiring such

Office at UM/Amherst. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was further 

VOTED: To authorize the Office of Liaison Service, 
UM/Amherst, to keep and employ an official 
University Seal as required from time to time 
for the certification of federal grant applica- 
tions and other documents of a routine nature 
which do not require personal certification by 
the President or the Secretary of the University. 

Chairman Healey called to the attention of the members 
of the Board the latest revision of the Parking Proposal for the 
UM/Amherst campus (Doc. T73-213) and outlined the procedure that 
would be followed in discussion of this subject. He asked that 
Chancellor Bromery review the proposal and that Trustee Pumphret, 
Chairman of the Finance Committee, comment. The floor would then 
be open for discussion. 

Chancellor Bromery reported that the parking proposal 
under consideration was a modification of the proposal originally 
introduced by the University administration for parking on the 
Amherst campus. He stated that the Finance Committee had met on 
the Amherst campus to discuss this proposal. Chancellor Bromery 
said that the University is trying to develop a balanced trans- 
portation system with the aid of a Department of Transportation 
grant, which provides buses for the use of the University in 
travel to "the campus and within the campus. Since the major 
objection raised had been to the level of the fees to be charged, 
Chancellor Bromery said that the proposal had been reviewed to 
determine the minimum budget under which the system could operate. 
He stated that he had asked his staff 1) to go back to the 
University community and get feedback on their concerns regarding 
the proposal and 2) to simplify the proposal so that people could 
better understand its meaning. 

Chancellor Bromery called the attention of the Board to 
the fact that the Economic Stabilization Act 60-day freeze on 
prices prevents the University from putting this parking plan 
into effect until after August 12, when Phase 4 begins. He 
further stated that the administration at Amherst is asking the 
Board for the authority to implement the parking proposal if it 
is found to be legal under Phase 4 regulations. 

Chancellor Bromery then called upon Planning Director 
Littlefield to explain the details of the proposal. Mr. Little- 
field did so, in the course of his remarks explaining that the 
parking plan is long range and that its intent is to improve

Chancellor Bromery added that there were two changes 
in the proposal since it had been circulated: 1) the $100 fee 
for reserved space in the core areas had been eliminated, and 
2) provisions will be made to make sure that parking regulations 
are enforced. 

Chairman Healey recognized Mr. Mark Dalton, general 
counsel for the Massachusetts State Employees Association, who 
presented the reasons why this group is opposed to the parking 
proposal: 1) in their opinion, parking fees should not be used 
to partially fund capital expenditures, which they feel is the 
case in the proposed parking plan; and 2) they do not feel that 
the parking fees should be used to partially fund the transit 
system. Mr. Dalton further stated that the proposal aims at 
setting fees so high as to discourage parking. 

Replying to Mr. Dalton' s remarks on the use of fees 
to discourage parking, Trustee Pumphret stated he understood 
that this statement referred to the Boston and not to the Amherst 
campus. He said that a fee of 50 cents a week was "hardly con- 
fiscatory. " 

Acting Chancellor Hamilton asked that the record show 
that the Boston campus constituencies had very seriously con- 
sidered the use of parking fees to support a bus system and all 
governance bodies on the campus have found that to be an entirely 
appropriate practice. 

Chairman Healey next recognized Mr. Augustus Camelio, 
general counsel for Local 1776 of the American Federation of 
State, County and Municipal Employees. Mr. Camelio stated that 
this group takes the position that any appropriations for parking 
facilities must come from the Legislature and that any revenues 
received must be returned to the Treasurer of the Commonwealth. 
He stated that in 1964 then-President Lederle sought an opinion 
from the Attorney General on this matter, and he suggested that 
the Board of Trustees should again request such an opinion to 
determine the legality of charging the proposed parking fees . 
He also stated his belief that the University has not bargained 
in good faith on this issue. 

Chairman Healey asked Chancellor Bromery to respond to 
the allegation of Mr. Camelio that the University had not bar- 
gained in good faith. Chancellor Bromery said that counsel was 
of the opinion that the University had bargained in good faith 
and asked Professor Bornstein to comment. Professor Bornstein 
stated that although he had not personally participated in any

discussions with the union, he had had reports of several meet- 
ings, both with the Massachusetts State Employees Association 
and with Local 1776. He further stated that the University's 
obligation was to discuss this matter with the union and in his 
opinion ample opportunities for discussion had been provided. 

Mr. Camelio stated the union's position that no changes 
can be implemented in the parking fees until a new collective 
bargaining agreement is reached, the current agreement expiring 
on January 31, 1974. 

Chairman Healey replied to Mr. Camelio that the Board 
of Trustees was not a legal forum, and that the Board had been 
advised by their counsel that the implementation of the proposed 
parking plan would not be in violation of the existing agreement 
or the obligation of the University to bargain collectively. 
Chairman Healey stated that this was an opinion only, but that 
the Board could not make judicial determinations. He stated 
that the Board must operate on the basis of good faith and the 
best information that it has. 

Chairman Healey asked William Searson, the University 
Counsel, to speak to the subject of the opinion from the Attorney 
General and the history of the request by Dr. Lederle to the 
Attorney General. 



Counselor Searson stated 
made to the Attorney General about 
fee for a campus transportation sys 
the opinion of the Attorney General 
the statutory authority to charge a 
purpose. However, the statute was 
and Counselor Searson stated that, 
amended statute it is now legal to 



that in 1964 an inquiry was 
the propriety of charging a 
tem. At that time, it was 
that the University lacked 
fee for that particular 
changed after that opinion 
in his opinion, under the 
charge a parking fee. 



Mr. Camelio stated that nowhere in the amended statute 
is the University relieved of the obligation to send fee monies 
to the Treasurer of the Commonwealth, and that this is where an 
opinion should be forthcoming from the Attorney General. 

Chairman Healey asked Counselor Searson to speak to 
this matter, and Mr. Searson stated that the amendment specifies 
that all monies received on account of the Commonwealth shall go 
to the Treasury. Several cases that have come before the Common- 
wealth have indicated that monies received for a special purpose 
do not fall within the provisions of the amendment. Chancellor 
Bromery read from Section 11, Chapter 877, of the Acts of 1965 
as follows: 

"...Fees and other charges made for any of the fore- 
going shall be deemed trust-fund income and the

trustees may designate any officer or officers of the 
University or agency or organization of the University 
or operated by University personnel or students as the 
person or agency to receive and disburse such trust- 
fund income." 

Chairman Healey next recognized Mr. Randall Dahl, 
representing the Professional Association of the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, who read a letter from the Association 
to Vice Chancellor Campion stating the reaction of PAUMA to the 
revised proposal. 

He reported that 86 per cent of the membership polled 
on the acceptability of the plan had rejected it. The Associa- 
tion, he stated, cannot accept the following three principles of 
the proposal: 1) the "collaboration of the University and the 
Federal government in a scheme to manipulate the commuter," 
2) the notion that users assume the financial burden of projects 
clearly within the capital outlay domain, and 3) the notion that 
the entire "out-of-pocket" financial burden of a transportation 
and parking system be borne by only one portion of the larger 
service population. 

Mr. Dahl stated that PAUMA suggests postponement of 
the proposal and that any changes instituted should be temporary 
measures. They further propose the immediate establishment of 
an official committee composed of representatives of the affected 
campus constituencies to study this issue comprehensively and to 
develop both long- and short-range recommendations for considera- 
tion and implementation by the Chancellor. In the interim, a 
moderate across-the-board increase in the current registration 
fee might provide sufficient revenue to meet immediate needs. 

Trustee Gordon inquired of Mr. Dahl what percentage of 
the membership of PAUMA was represented by the poll outlined in 
the letter. Mr. Dahl replied that the responses received rep- 
resented approximately 10 per cent of their constituency. 

Chairman Healey then called upon Professor Seymour 
Shapiro to speak for the Faculty Senate at Amherst. Professor 
Shapiro stated that he could not speak for the Senate because 
the Senate does not meet during the summer and they have not 
had an opportunity to discuss the revised proposal. He has, 
however, talked with a number of faculty members, and felt that 
action on the parking proposal should be delayed until they have 
a further chance to discuss the matter. President Wood asked 
Professor Shapiro if the Faculty Senate had reacted to the original 
proposal and taken a formal position. Professor Shapiro deferred 
to Chancellor Bromery on this question, and he replied that the 
Faculty Senate had passed a motion asking the Chancellor to delay 
any action until further consultation. Professor Shapiro said

that he felt the buses are now being used to 90 per cent of 
capacity and that if the new proposal goes into effect, the 
buses will not be able to handle the additional riders. 

Trustee Troy inquired whether, if the campus community 
decided they were satisfied with the situation as it presently 
exists, Professor Shapiro would recommend that the proposed plan 
be dropped. Professor Shapiro replied that this should be one 
of the options. 

Trustee Pumphret remarked that for three years there 
had been discussions by committees on this problem, and that 
acceptance of the proposed plan would not necessarily mean the 
end of dialogue on the subject. He asserted that flaws in the 
program will not appear until it is in operation; in that event, 
steps will be taken to amend the program. Mr. Pumphret stated 
that admittedly a mistake was made before May in not discussing 
the program more fully on the campus, but that since that time 
Chancellor Bromery had taken steps to correct this error. 
Attempts have been made to adjust the proposal as a result of 
campus reaction, and he believed the proposal should now be put 
into effect. 

Chairman Healey recognized Mr. Arnold Schneider, rep- 
resenting the Massachusetts Teachers Association, who stated 
that although the MTA was not an official representative of the 
UM/Amherst faculty, he hoped one day they might be and that he 
joined with his colleagues in recommending a postponement of 
action on this proposal. 

Chairman Healey now closed discussion from the floor 
and asked for discussion from the Trustees. Trustee Crowley 
expressed the view that there is a definite parking problem at 
the Amherst campus as evidenced by lack of control he has 
observed. Trustee Apostola stated his belief that the proposal 
is a good one, but reported his feeling that the administration 
had not made students and faculty aware of the importance of the 
problem, and that until they are convinced of its seriousness, 
they will be opposed to any change. 

Trustee Knowles asked for confirmation of her belief 
that acceptance of the proposal did not preclude change, to 
which Trustee Pumphret responded affirmatively. Mr. Pumphret 
then moved that the proposal be adopted. 

Trustee Gordon stated that he also felt the proposal 
should be implemented and that parking had not been well admin- 
istered at the University. He stated that no counterproposals 
had been forthcoming and that since the proposal can be amended, 
it should be voted.

Trustee Chandler asked who sits on the campus Trans- 
portation and Parking Council, and Planning Director Littlefield 
replied that the Council was set up by the Faculty Senate with 
representation of classified personnel, the Professional Associa- 
tion, the Faculty Senate and students. Trustee Boyden raised the 
question of whether there was a procedure for handling grievances 
or appeals. Chancellor Bromery, at the request of the Chairman, 
replied that the Parking and Transportation Council is the best 
vehicle for reviewing grievances. 

Trustee Haigis stated that he is in favor of the propos- 
al. Trustee Gordon suggested that there should be a review of the 
proposal sometime in the next spring. Chancellor Bromery empha- 
sized to the Board that the implementation of the proposed vote 
would not preclude the administration of the Amherst campus's 
coming back to the Board in the spring for the approval of fees. 
Trustee Croce said that he felt the proposal is a good one and 
that he wished only to be assured that the various campus con- 
stituencies would have fair representation on the Council that 
Chancellor Bromery will appoint. Chairman Healey asked if there 
was further discussion and there being none, he stated that there 
was a motion before the Board and on the motion being seconded, 
it was 

VOTED: 1) That the Chancellor of the Amherst campus is 
hereby delegated authority to implement: 

a) an integrated transportation and parking 
system including the installation of up to 
300 additional parking meters, in locations 
to be determined by the Transportation and 
Parking Office. 

b) a parking fee schedule including a basic 
registration fee of $5.00 to be paid by all 
users of on-campus surface parking and a 
graduated schedule of additional charges 
for core, edge, and reserved parking. 

2) This delegation of authority is made with aware- 
ness of an outstanding Presidential Executive Order 
that has stabilized all prices until mid-August, 
1973. In the event that implementation of a new 
parking and transportation system on the Amherst 
campus contravenes Federal law and regulations, 
the Chancellor of the Amherst campus is directed 
to make such adjustments in the parking and trans- 
portation system as may be necessary to comply 
with Federal law.

At the Chairman's request, President Wood turned to 
matters under the Presidential Agenda. He commented briefly 
on his pleasure at being able to submit the Operating Budget 
for Fiscal Year 1974, complete and in hand at the earliest date 
in his administration. The President described the strength of 
the Operating Budget, saying that it provided a generally satis- 
factory basis for operation, even though it leaves the University 
with certain problems in such areas as financial aid and library 
support. He said that he would yield the remaining portion of 
his time for use by Professor Maurice Donahue in the subsequent 
report on the Institute for Governmental Services. The President 
then invited comment by campus chief executives. 

Chancellor Bromery reported that UM/ Amherst, as a result 
of the special meeting of the Board of Trustees in July, will 
implement the modified campus parking plan for the fall term, 
establishing a committee to evaluate the plan as it goes into 
operation and to supply remedies for any defects in it that may 
arise. Chancellor Bromery further reported that the Legislative 
Commission on Reorganization of Higher Education would meet at 
UM/Amherst from 4 to 7 p.m. on August 2, 1973, and that he and 
other campus officers would present their views on reorganization 
to the Commission at that time. In further comment, the Chan- 
cellor said that he had been elected a Member of the Corporation 
of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and that it was his 
hope that this new responsibility would lead to an increasingly 
close relationship between the University and the Institute. 

Chancellor Golino commented that, since July 20, he 
had occupied his office at Columbia Point maintaining an extra 
office for contact with faculty and students at 100 Arlington 
Street in Boston. The Chancellor gave recognition to the success- 
ful efforts of Vice Chancellor Marshall to help secure a $400,000 
grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York, payable in equal 
amounts over a two-year period, in support of a major inter- 
institutional program concerning development of education for 
women students. Institutions involved in the program supported 
by the grant include, in addition to the UM/Boston, the following: 
Boston College, Brandeis University, Hampshire College, and MIT. 
Chancellor Golino further took occasion to express his personal 
gratitude to former Acting Chancellor Hamilton for his assistance 
in the transition to the present administration of the Boston 
campus . 

Dean Soutter reported briefly on the fact that, for the 
second year in a row, the UM/Worcester students taking the 
Medical Board Examinations had had no failures . He expressed 
satisfaction that this record of success is superior to that of 
students at medical schools not far distant.

President Wood then introduced Professor Maurice 
Donahue, first reviewing the history of the formation of the 
Institute for Governmental Services, and then expressing his 
conviction that Professor Donahue, as the Institute's first 
Director has demonstrated significant educational leadership. 
Professor Donahue described the Institute's role as a linking 
mechanism between the University and various local and state 
governmental agencies throughout the Commonwealth, and reviewed 
the many projects and programs accomplished by the Institute 
during its first three years of operation. Examples are train- 
ing for Massachusetts municipal personnel, development of cur- 
ricular materials for Spanish-speaking firemen and technical 
assistance for governmental agencies. 

He distributed to the Trustees packets of informational 
material summarizing these programs and projects and containing 
a memorandum with regard to future plans of the Institute. 
During his presentation, Professor Donahue utilized visual aids 
summarizing and highlighting the operations of the Institute, 
and distributed for examination copies of publications prepared 
under his direction. He spoke of the work of Dr. Arthur Eve, 
Associate Director of the Institute, and Mr. James Samels, Direc- 
tor of Research. In his presentation, Professor Donahue informed 
the Board of the substantial grant and contract support the 
Institute has received during its first three years, and empha- 
sized that to meet the need for the kinds of programs the In- 
stitute supplies, it will be necessary for him to come to the 
Trustees in the future with a request for budget support, com- 
plementary to grant and contract funding. 

At the close of Professor Donahue's report, Trustee 
Gordon commented, in view of his own prior experience in helping 
to establish the Institute, that it was remarkable how much had 
been accomplished under Professor Donahue in only three years. 
He said that the Committee that had organized the Institute had 
hoped that it would provide outreach for the University as well 
as exerting a constructive influence internally. Trustee Gordon 
said that the Institute has done this, and that its accomplish- 
ments exceeded the Committee's expectations. At the close of 
Trustee Gordon's comment there was applause from Trustees and 
others in attendance. 

Upon motion made by President Wood and seconded, it was 

VOTED: To elect L. James DeWolfe, Jr., Assistant Secretary 
of the University, to be Assistant Secretary, Board 
of Trustees, for a term of office extending until 
the Annual Meeting of the Board of Trustees, 
February, 1974.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Reporting for the Executive Committee, Chairman Healey 
related Committee recommendations concerning the Operating 
Budget for Fiscal Year 1974 (Doc. T74-013) and asked President 
Wood for further comment. President Wood indicated that the 
1974 Operating Budget reflects an increase of $12 million over 
the preceding year, including provisions for 591 new positions, 
while maintaining the 15-to~l student/faculty ratio as a basic 
guideline for budget construction. He said that the budget 
reflected credit on the efforts of the Trustees during prior 
months of budget development, and expressed his hope that the 
budget would be given final adoption. After brief further dis- 
cussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To adopt the Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 1974 

as detailed in Document T74-013, subject to revisions 
which reflect the modifications necessary to accom- 
modate the document to the appropriations enacted in 
Chapter 466 of the General Laws. 

Chairman Healey reported the recommendation of the 
Executive Committee that the revised Bylaws of the Board of 
Trustees (Doc. T73-031, Draft #5) be adopted by the Board of 
Trustees. Trustee Robertson referred to Section 5, paragraph (c) 
of the proposed Bylaws, relative to the submission of agenda items 
to the Board, and inquired who would make the determination that 
an item was "necessary and appropriate" for Board consideration. 
President Wood replied that the campus chief executive, acting 
upon the recommendation of his campus Liaison Committee, would 
make a recommendation to the President , with the Chairman making 
the final determination. Chairman Healey added that the intent 
was to adhere to the Board's published policy governing appear- 
ances before the Board, while insuring the timely completion of 
the Board's business by prescribing the manner in which presenta- 
tions are to be made. He added his belief that this matter could 
be handled by interpretation during the operation of the document, 
rather than by formal amendment. Trustee Robertson agreed. It 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To adopt the revised Bylaws of the Board of Trustees 
(Doc. T73-031, Draft #5). 

Chairman Healey noted that the newly adopted Bylaws 
established two new standing committees - Budget and Long-Range 
Planning - and that assignments to these committees are in order. 
With the agreement of the Board, the Chairman asked Trustee 
Crowley to consult with the Nominating Committee and individual 
Trustees with regard to such assignments and any other needed 
realignments of committee memberships, with recommendations to 
be reported to the Board at its September 1973 meeting.

At Chairman Healey's request, Chancellor Bromery 
reviewed the Request for New Job Title, Senior Head of Residence 
(Doc. T74-015) , that he had presented to the Executive Committee 
at its earlier meeting. It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : 



It was also 



VOTED : 



That the Classification of Position Titles under 
the Provision of Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962 
shall be fixed in a weekly salary range from a 
minimum to a maximum or fixed at a specific 
weekly salary rate which shall not be changed 
except by vote of the Board of Trustees and such 
classification shall not be designated by any 
job group number or grade. 



That, in accordance with the Provisions of Chapter 
648 of the Acts of 1962, the position title in the 
Professional Staff detailed in Doc. T74-015 is 
classified as a weekly salary rate specified 
after the title of position in the following 
schedule subject to subsequently being amended, 
revised, added to, or repealed by the Board of 
Trustees under the Provisions of said Chapter 648. 



Reporting for the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy, Trustee Troy cited recent actions on the tenure appeal 
case of Professor A. Wayne Corcoran, UM/Amherst. On June 21, 1973, 
he reported, the Committee had conducted a formal hearing in this 
matter and had reviewed it further in executive session, con- 
cluding that Professor Corcoran should be granted tenure. Chan- 
cellor Bromery meanwhile also had asked for a review of the case, 
and Dr. Bischoff made the review and recommended that Professor 
Corcoran' s tenure be granted. After Chairman Troy reported these 
combined recommendations, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve an appointment with tenure for Pro- 
fessor A. Wayne Corcoran, Accounting Department, 
School of Business Administration, UM/Amherst, 
effective September 1, 1973. 

Chairman Troy reported briefly on the Committee's con- 
sideration of the Commonwealth Transfer Compact (Doc. T74-011) , 
which has been negotiated by the three components of public higher 
education in Massachusetts, in order to give students with two- 
year associate degrees within the Commonwealth full transfer credit 
at public four-year institutions, including the University. 
Chairman Troy said that it was his understanding of the Compact 
that the associate degree would not automatically guarantee admis- 
sion to the four- year college or university, but that if a student

were admitted, he would be given two full years of credit. He 
said that until recently there had been a good deal of variation 
in transfer credit among all Massachusetts four-year public in- 
stitutions, but that last year the Trustees of the Board had 
agreed to give full credit to holders of the Associate in Arts 
degree. Chairman Troy added that the new proposal would extend 
this policy to the Associate in Science degree, which might 
include some work in vocational studies, and that this proposal 
had not been presented to the Faculty Senate at UM/ Amherst or to 
the appropriate body at UM/Boston for evaluation and criticism. 
He cited the sense of the Committee that this be done in view of 
the implications for academic standards, and said that the Com- 
mittee agreed to defer recommendation on the proposal pending 
such evaluation. 

Chairman Troy reported the consideration the Committee 
had given to the Proposal for College IV , UM/Boston, (Doc. T74- 
002) , and said that present planning has defined this new unit 
as a "College of Professional Studies," in which certain areas 
of possible study have been tentatively identified, e.g. , manage- 
ment studies and urban technology. Chairman Troy said that the 
College will also include a strong liberal arts component and 
expressed the hope of the Committee that there can be a generous 
exchange of offerings among the several colleges. He reported 
the Committee's recommendation that the Trustees note the present 
proposal with regard to College IV and authorize a search to 
begin for a Dean and appropriate planning staff, so that further 
development of this unit of the Boston campus may proceed. 
President Wood reminded the Board of Trustees that a similar 
procedure was followed with regard to College III, and emphasized 
that the present tentative proposal constitutes an approach 
rather than a final program design. 

President Wood said that there has been extensive con- 
sultation with other institutions in the Boston area in connec- 
tion with College IV planning. He indicated that there will be 
an opportunity for further review of College IV planning by the 
Board of Trustees after successful conclusion of a search for a 
Dean. The President observed that it would be appropriate to 
begin the search now, so that the organization of College IV can 
proceed in time to respond to the further expected enrollment 
growth of the Boston campus. Upon inquiry by the President, 
Chancellor Golino indicated his agreement with this view. After 
brief additional discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To authorize Chancellor Carlo L. Golino, UM/Boston, 
to undertake a search for a Dean and an appropriate 
planning staff for College IV.

Chairman Troy reported the Committee's recommendation 
that Professors Blattner, Kaulenas and Seelig (Doc. T74-009 , 008

tions and brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and

fessor with Tenure at UM/Amherst. 

It was then

fessor of Zoology with Tenure at UM/Amherst. 

It was further

Chairman Troy reported the Committee's recommendation 
of approval of a Merger of the School of Nursing and the Depart- 
ment of Public Health into a School of Health Sciences , UM/Amherst 
(Doc. T74-012) . He said that it was felt both units had much to 
gain by this merger in effecting academic and administrative 
cooperation, a strengthened probability of accreditation of the 
public health component, and a nursing faculty improved through 
better access to the graduate faculty of public health. Chairman 
Troy said that the Committee had been concerned about whether this 
merger might later handicap developing programs at UM/Worcester in 
the sense that problems of duplication might arise, but assurances 
were given by the President and by Dr. Bischoff that this merger 
would have immediate benefits at Amherst and would not foreclose 
later possible development at Worcester or Boston. 

In discussion of the proposed merger, Trustee Abrams 
asked questions about the Deanship of the new school. Chairman 
Troy said that the Deanship would alternate between the Director 
of the Division of Nursing and the Director of Public Health, and 
Dr. Bischoff commented that the plan of rotating the Deanship 
between these two divisions, had been agreed to by faculty of both 
divisions and by the accrediting societies in their respective 
fields. Trustee Croce asked whether this innovation had been 
tried elsewhere, and Dr. Bischoff said that, while it had not, it 
was believed that its advantages would be interesting to other 
institutions, particularly as the merger provided programmatic 
flexibility and better resources at the graduate level for nurs- 
ing education. Trustee Weldon asked whether the rotating Dean- 
ship was devised only as an arrangement for the duration of tenure 
of the two present heads; Dr. Bischoff replied that this was not 
the case, since there is no present Dean in Nursing, and the 
Department Chairman of Public Health currently is neither a Dean

After brief further discussion, it was moved, 



VOTED: To establish a School of Health Sciences at 

UM/ Amherst, initially by merging the existing 
School of Nursing and Department of Public Health. 

Chairman Troy reported the Committee's recommendation 
in favor of a Lease of Apartment Facilities in Washington, D.C. , 
for Student Interns , UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-007) . Chancellor 
Bromery commented that the proposed lease represented what is 
at present a program of the Amherst campus, but one which he 
hopes will come to include and be helpful to UM/Boston. After 
brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To authorize the administration at Amherst to nego- 
tiate a lease of apartment facilities in Washington, 
D.C., said lease term to commence in the fall of 
1973 and not to exceed August 31, 1975, for the pur- 
poses of housing approximately forty interns per 
semester from the University who will be administra- 
tive interns in Congressional and Executive offices 
of the government. Further, that the Treasurer of 
the University be empowered and authorized to execute 
a lease agreement for and in behalf of the University 
in furtherance of said purpose upon successful com- 
pletion of said negotiations. 

Trustee Knowles, Chairman of the Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds, reported that the Committee had met in Worcester on 
July 16, at which time a proposal for Temporary Student Housing , 
UM/Worcester (Doc. T74-001) , had been presented by Dean Soutter, 
who explained that housing in the area is difficult to find. 
Chairman Knowles stated that the Committee had received a number 
of letters from students as well as a letter from Trustee Abrams 
giving support for the documentation for the need for the Uni- 
versity to help in providing student housing quarters. Chairman 
Knowles reported that because the Legislature had struck housing 
from the appropriation for UM/Worcester in 1971 and because of 
the need for equity in student housing provisions at all three 
campuses, the Committee had decided not to approve the present 
proposal at this time, and to develop a long-range housing plan 
by January, 1974, with a possible six -month extension. 

Chairman Knowles reported that Mark Mendell of the firm 
of Campbell, Aldrich & Nulty had presented a design for the cor- 
ridors in the medical building which would create interesting 
color and light patterns at night. She stated that the design 
would be painted on the walls and would, therefore, add no cost; 
that the architectural consultant to the University approved of 
the design; and that although Dean Soutter was not in favor of it, 
he had no objection to the Committee's taking the responsibility

Chairman Knowles reported that Acting Chancellor 
Hamilton had presented to the Committee a Progress Report for 
UM/Boston (Doc. T74-003) , stating that service and administra- 
tive facilities were ready for immediate occupancy; that furni- 
ture and equipment for the two colleges and the science and li- 
brary buildings were expected by October 1; that approximately 
100 staff members would be on hand for the fall semester; and 
that as soon as the college and science buildings are ready for 
use, classroom activities will be held there for the Upward Bound 
and Action programs, including approximately 300 students. Chair- 
man Knowles reported that security provision will be strengthened 
as necessary and that, at the suggestion of Treasurer Johnson, 
none of the buildings will be formally accepted until inspected 
by the Committee, the architects and the contractors. Although 
transportation is behind schedule, it is hoped that the stagger- 
ing of classes will make this problem less acute. She further 
reported that Dr. Hamilton had been successful in securing an 
interest subsidy grant from the Federal government for Building 
030 in the amount of $68,000. 



UM/Boston — 
Progress Report 
(Doc. T74-003) 



Chairman Knowles reported that Dean Soutter had pre- 
sented a progress report on construction at the UM/Worcester cam- 
pus, stating that the power plant was being turned over to the 
University and that the Medical Science building was also ready 
for partial occupancy, but that no buildings will be given final 
acceptance until all check lists are completed. She stated that 
architect's elevations and renderings requested for the lobby and 
some other rooms in the hospital had not been forthcoming and 
that the Committee had voted to request that the architects sub- 
mit these without delay. Dr. Wood informed Chairman Knowles that 
these renderings had not been authorized in writing by the Bureau 
of Building Construction. 



Chairman Knowles reported that construction of the 
hospital was ahead of schedule, that the Out-Patient Department 
was expected to be in operation by March of 1975, and that al- 
though no money had yet been appropriated for equipment, approx- 
imately $5 million was available from funds for construction of 
the hospital, which might be used for this purpose if the Legis- 
lature agreed to this procedure. Surface parking is available 
for the Medical Science building and a parking garage is scheduled 
to coincide with the opening of the hospital. The Department of 
Public Health of the City of Worcester and the Regional Red Cross 
Blood Program are interested in space in the Shaw building and 
Treasurer Johnson has been authorized to draw up rental contracts 
for the Committee's approval.

Chairman Knowles reported that Planning Director 
Littlef ield had presented a Report on the Demonstration Grant 
from the Department of Transportation , UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-005) , 
indicating the service that would be provided. She stated that 
the Committee was agreed that some means of identification should 
be provided so that non-University personnel could not ride the 
buses free of charge. She reported that cost and use data will 
be developed as the grant progresses. 

Chairman Knowles stated that Professor Donald Progulske, 
head of the Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management, 
College of Food and Natural Resources, UM/Amherst, had reported 
on the Proposed FAA Construction of a Microwave Repeater on Mt. 
Toby and that the Committee on Buildings and Grounds recommended 
that the University grant a license to construct this repeater. 
On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED: That the administration of the University of 

Massachusetts at Amherst be authorized to enter 
a license agreement with the Federal Aviation 
Administration to install a microwave repeater 
on Mt. Toby, Sunderland, Massachusetts, as part 
of a long-range radar facility which the FAA is 
establishing to provide additional radar coverage 
of aircraft movements in the New England region; 
further , to authorize the Treasurer of the Uni- 
versity to execute all necessary documents in 
behalf of the University to implement the pro- 
posed license agreement. 

Chairman Knowles then turned to Trustee Sullivan for a 
discussion of sewerage problems in the Town of Amherst. Trustee 
Sullivan related that the Town had been aware of certain inade- 
quacies in its sewerage system since 1967 and has been taking 
corrective actions, including a ban on the issuance of new sewer- 
age construction permits, effective March 1, 1973. On July 2, 
1973, however, the Commonwealth imposed a total ban on sewerage 
construction within the Amherst area, including projects for 
which permits had already been issued and construction is under- 
way, as well as prohibiting the use of buildings completed but 
not yet occupied. For UM/Amherst this would prevent use of the 
Fine Arts building, the addition to the Graduate Research Center, 
the infirmary, the new power plant and the new bus garage. 

In view of actions already taken by the Town, the 
Board of Selectmen has requested a limited lifting of the ban, 
relative to the retroactive portion which prohibits new construc- 
tion on permits already issued and use of completed buildings. 
Trustee Sullivan concluded by saying that he was optimistic about 
the outcome of the appeal by the Town.

Trustee Abrams then inquired of Dean Soutter what UM/ 
Worcester was now doing to help its students find housing, to which 
the Dean replied that some members of the staff were working 
personally with students to help them locate housing. Trustee 
Abrams further inquired about the obstacles to using a portion of 
the Medical Building for housing. President Wood replied that the 
first concern was a legal one, in that the Legislature struck 
housing from the act appropriating capital outlay funds; it is, 
therefore, a question of the propriety of using buildings for that 
purpose. He cited on a second issue the amount and degree of sub- 
sidy appropriate for medical students in view of their anticipated 
future earnings and the absence of such subsidy for Ph.D. candi- 
dates. The third issue, he stated, is one of general housing sub- 
sidy policy, in that the University is itself providing no student 
housing at the UM/Boston campus. The President added that he 
understood the urgency of the communications he has received from 
the medical students and others, but that the total situation was 
such as to make development of the January, 1974, planning report 
the most reasonable action to take. 

Additional discussion followed on the relative needs of 
medical students and other graduate students for housing close by 
their laboratories and other educational facilities. Upon further 
inquiry from Trustee Abrams as to legislative constraints on 
building use, Chairman Healey reemphasized that the legislative 
intent was quite clear that student housing not be provided. 

Trustee Pumphret stated his strong opposition to the 
UM/Worcester housing proposal, noting the impropriety of convert- 
ing a building to an alternate use, the legislative intent vis— a- 
vis housing, and the impropriety of using state funds and labor 
for the proposed temporary conversion. Chairman Healey noted that 
this seemed to be the sense of the Committee. 

President Wood then presented a Reclassification of 
Position Title for Director of Dental Health, UM; Legal Counsel 
to the Chancellor, UM/ Amherst and Assistant Counsel to the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts; and Staff Administrator, UM. Upon motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Classification of Position Titles under 
the Provision of Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962 
shall be fixed in a weekly salary range from a 
minimum to a maximum or fixed at a specific 
weekly salary rate which shall not be changed 
except by vote of the Board of Trustees and 
such classification shall not be designated by 
any job group number or grade.

The Provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board 
was convened by Acting Chairman Crowley at 10:45 a.m. 

The Minutes of the previous meeting were presented for 
approval. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Minutes of the prior regular meeting 
of August 1, 1973. 

At Acting Chairman Crowley's request, President Wood 
spoke of two items. 

First, President Wood reminded the Trustees of the 
Statement on Student Financial Aid that he had presented to the 
Board for consideration and approval at the Ashland Meeting of 
March 7, 1973. That Statement, supported by vote of the Trustees, 
urged the Governor and the Legislature to propose and enact an 
additional statewide program of scholarships and loans of at least 
$25 million in order to benefit students throughout the Common-

wealth, in public and private institutions, such aid to address 
the total cost of student attendance, not tuition alone. President 
Wood said that, after approval of the Budget for Fiscal Year 1974, 
he had written to Speaker David Bartley asking for legislative 
support of such an enlarged higher education scholarship and loan 
program, and suggesting that legislation in this regard be intro- 
duced in the closing weeks of the present session of the General 
Court. President Wood distributed to the Board of Trustees copies 
of his letter to Speaker Bartley, and said that he is hopeful that 
the University of Massachusetts can give leadership to increased 
financial aid for students of the Commonwealth not only in the 
University, but in other public and private institutions of the 
State. 

Second, President Wood noted that he has received from 
Chancellor Bromery a report of the findings of last spring's 
Conference on International Studies held at the Amherst campus, 
and that he believes these findings, as implemented, will help 
the University move into a new period of research, study, and 
teaching in the international field. President Wood mentioned 
the prospect of increasingly active cooperation by. the University 
with Hokkaido University, the University of Freiberg, and programs 
in France and elsewhere. He spoke briefly of his view that one 
prime focus for international programs at the University should be 
on ethnic studies relevant to the unique history and social com- 
position of Massachusetts. President Wood indicated that the 
University will seek to move forward in terms of findings of the 
Conference, and that he will report to the Trustees on progress 
at a later date. 

President Wood then called upon Provost Gluckstern for 
comment on developments at the Amherst campus. Provost Gluckstern 
reported that Chancellor Bromery was presently in Cairo concluding 
arrangements for the transfer of the Papers of W.E.B. DuBois to 
the University. Provost Gluckstern said that the DuBois papers 
are regarded as a very important acquisition, that the acquisition 
is being noted widely in the historical world, and that the campus 
is pleased to have the important new resource for historical re- 
search that the papers represent. Provost Gluckstern went on to 
report on faculty recruitment for the present academic year, 
noting that 128 new appointments to faculty positions had been 
made in order to fill vacancies created by resignations, leaves, 
and budgetary allocation of new positions. He said that he is 
pleased by the high quality of the new appointments and by the 
fact that fifty-seven percent of the new appointments are women 
and/or members of minority groups. Provost Gluckstern commented 
that the proportion of women and minority group members appointed 
indicates the effect of the Affirmative Action Program. 

President Wood then asked Chancellor Golino to report 
for the Boston campus. Chancellor Golino said that he expects to

have a Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs selected by October 1, 
that a search committee has been established to identify candi- 
dates for the position of Dean of College IV, that 2100 new stu- 
dents are enrolled at the Boston campus this fall, and that these 
include 1450 freshmen and 650 transfer students. The total also 
includes 300 students who constitute the first enrollment of 
College III. 

Chancellor Golino reported that his activities have been 
especially intensive in community relations. These activities 
have included visits to homes in the communities surrounding 
Columbia Point, participation in community social events, appear- 
ance on a television program dealing with the University, visita- 
tion with the faculty of Boston College High School, a tour of 
field offices of the campus in Dorchester, Charlestown, and else- 
where, and an interview with Cardinal Medeiros. Chancellor Golino 
said that he will continue to give high priority to community 
relations in his leadership of the campus, emphasizing the desire 
of the University to be a good neighbor. 

With regard to transportation, Chancellor Golino re- 
ported that he expected an answer within days from the MBTA on 
the cost of establishing a shuttle bus between the MBTA system 
and the campus by January 1974. The Chancellor further reported 
that a contract for necessary roadwork and signal construction 
had gone to the low bidder, that he expected construction to 
begin within two weeks, with work to be completed by December 5. 

Employment at the Columbia Point campus, Chancellor 
Golino said, continues to follow an aggressive policy designed 
to involve job seekers from the local community. He said that 
the campus had received 218 applications for jobs as of the cur- 
rent date, that 154 of these were from the local impact area, 
including 50 from minority group members. Chancellor Golino 
reported that for 48 positions open, 29 presently had been filled, 
and that 18 of the 29 jobs had gone to local community residents, 
of whom six were from minority groups. 

Chancellor Golino noted the establishment of a campus 
Housing Office, and emphasized its uniqueness. He said that the 
new office is not principally seeking housing for students, but 
rather instructing students through pamphlets and other means 
with regard to the consequences that may result from their 
moving into the community area around Columbia Point. He said 
that the new office is actively seeking "leads" to housing for 
students away from the Columbia Point location. 

In concluding remarks, Chancellor Golino said that he 
is hopeful that an Affirmative Action Officer may be chosen soon, 
and that, despite a temporary jurisdictional strike involving 
two unions, building delivery at Columbia Point continues to be 
on schedule.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



At President Wood's request Dean Soutter reported for 
the University of Massachusetts Medical School at Worcester. 
Dean Soutter said that the move is now being made from the Shaw 
Building into the new Medical Sciences Building, that some prob- 
lems with regard to the operation of the power plant exist but 
are being worked out, that the Medical School has 40 new students 
this fall constituting its largest class so far, and that applica- 
tions for admission for the Medical School in the fall of 1974 
are greater than the number for any previous year. Dean Soutter 
said that the construction of the Teaching Hospital is going for- 
ward well, with every expectation that it will be complete and 
ready for opening in March 1975. 

President Wood then asked the Board to consider a re- 
port of progress by the Western Massachusetts Public Interest 
Research Group (WMPIRG). He said that, just as at the prior meet- 
ing he had asked Professor Donahue to report on the progress of 
the Institute for Governmental Services as a special University 
activity, he believed the Trustees would be interested now in 
hearing of the work of another special activity to which they had 
given their endorsement. WMPIRG support by the University, he 
commented, made this institution among the first to encourage of- 
ficially organized public interest action by students. President 
Wood then invited Trustee Apostola to open the WMPIRG report. 
Trustee Apostola said that, a year previously when Board approval 
of a $2 optional student fee for WMPIRG activities had been sought, 
he and other Amherst campus students had high hopes for the ef- 
fectiveness of this new organization. Trustee Apostola commented 
that all of these high hopes had been borne out. He then intro- 
duced Mr. Ronald E. Bogard, Attorney /Director, to report on WMPIRG 
progress. 

Mr. Bogard said that WMPIRG is a non-partisan, non- 
political intercampus student organization, working for progressive 
change within the existing framework of the American legal and 
educational systems. The organization has three basic functions: 
to participate in decisions which affect public health and well- 
being; to help students gain practical research skills in consumer 
protection, environmental affairs, occupational health and safety, 
civil rights and other fields, and to provide an outlet for the 
research efforts of concerned faculty members; and to provide an 
alternative work experience for professionals who wish to occupy 
themselves full-time in public interest research. Mr. Bogard said 
that student contributions of $2 a semester supplied ninety-five 
percent of WMPIRG' s operating funds during the first year. The 
University of Massachusetts , through its students, provided the 
heaviest proportion of revenue for WMPIRG, but with significant 
student fee support also coming from Williams College, Hampshire 
College, Springfield College, and Mount Holyoke College. The 
governance of WMPIRG is under an eight-member regional Board of 
Directors representing students at participating institutions.

In addition each participating institution forms a local board to 
act upon issues of more local concern. In the academic year 
1972-1973 over 150 students took part in various WMPIRG activities 
as volunteer researchers. Many of these students were able to 
secure academic credit for their field experience and research 
with WMPIRG, and some became designated interns either during the 
academic year or during the summer. Projects of WMPIRG during 
its first year included a suit filed against the Western Massa- 
chusetts Electric Company and the Massachusetts Department of 
Public Utilities to oppose an electric rate increase, a survey of 
unsafe toys offered for sale during the Christmas buying season, 
a survey of prescription drug prices in 90 area pharmacies, a 20- 
page consumer information booklet entitled "How to Sue in Small 
Claims Court in Western Massachusetts", participation in efforts 
to improve river ecology, documentation of the need for estab- 
lishment of a Federal District Court for Western Massachusetts, 
participation in a suit to block superhighway construction along 
U.S. Route 7, and participation in efforts to maintain adequate 
water quality, particularly in connection with the question of 
sewage treatment in the Town of Amherst. 

At the conclusion of Mr. Bogard's presentation, he 
responded to several questions of information asked by Trustees, 
and was thanked by President Wood for his informative description 
of the WMPIRG activities. 

Acting Chairman Crowley then asked President Wood to 
report for the Executive Committee. President Wood said that the 
Executive Committee had met earlier on September 5 and had re- 
viewed the situation of the University at the beginning of a new 
academic year. He reported that the Executive Committee had 
approved a proposal from the Amherst campus (Doc. T7 4-017) to 
establish a rental rate for the Lashway House apartment in South 
Deerfield. This proposal provides for a rental rate for a three- 
room apartment in the Lashway House located on the University 
farm property in South Deerfield, to be occupied by a farm hand 
who will also be responsible for serving as night watchman and 
will provide weekend security for the property. Upon motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That effective September 1, 1973, the monthly 

rental charge for the three-room apartment located 
in the Lashway House, South Deerfield, will be $35, 
including utilities. 

Acting Chairman Crowley then asked Trustee Knowles to 
report for the Committee on Buildings and Grounds, which had met 
on the previous day. Chairman Knowles said that, at the meeting, 
Dean Soutter had reported on the continued rapid progress on con- 
struction of the Teaching Hospital, that he had raised questions 
with regard to the design of the meditation room and interior

court and had reported that further information on these spaces 
will be provided to the Committee next month. Chairman Knowles 
reported that architectural consultant Harold Roth had reviewed 
a set of site development drawings for the area around the Medical 
Science Building and the Teaching Hospital. According to this 
plan, surface parking would be included in a staged development 
related to the continuing growth of the Medical School and com- 
pletion of the Hospital. The drawings, according to Chairman 
Knowles, established the location for a future parking garage 
which could be constructed in two phases to meet the demand of 
the Hospital as it comes into full operation. The schedule of 
construction would follow four phases: 

Parking Spaces 

Phase I : 343 surface parking spaces 

Phase II: 648 surface parking spaces 

Phase III: 648 surface parking spaces plus 
1050 garage parking spaces 

Phase IV: 648 surface parking spaces plus 
2000 garage parking spaces 

Chairman Knowles stated that the Buildings and Grounds Committee 
had already approved the conceptual design of the Medical School 
site, as presented by representatives of the firm of Campbell, 
Aldrich, and Nulty in March 1970. The new drawings reviewed by 
Mr. Roth are a more detailed version of this design, taking ac- 
count of the need for phased development of surface parking and 
establishing the location and general dimensions of a future 
parking garage. Chairman Knowles said that the new drawings 
were considered approved by the Committee, and that she would

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the presently more detailed version of 

the Medical School site design, originally presented 
by Campbell, Aldrich, and Nulty in March 1970 and 
approved at that time, now providing for phased 
development of surface and garage parking as re- 
ported by the Committee. 

Acting Chairman Crowley at this point asked Trustee 
Troy to report for the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy. Chairman Troy first presented to the Trustees the recom- 
mendation of the Committee that Robert S. Weiss be appointed 
Professor of Sociology at the University of Massachusetts/Boston 
and as Chairman of the Department of Sociology in College II of 
that campus. Upon motion made and seconded, it was

Chairman Troy further reported that Trustee Robertson, in the 
course of the Committee meeting, had called attention to the need 
of new Trustees for orientation to the organization and affairs 
of the University during their first month of service. Chairman 
Troy said that all members of the Committee agreed that such 
orientation was desirable, and that Secretary Patterson would 
undertake responsibility for developing such a program for new 
Trustees. 

Acting Chairman Crowley then reported to the Trustees 
as Chairman of the Nominating Committee, indicating changes in 
committee membership recommended by that Committee. He called 
attention to the discontinuation of the Committee on Government 
Relations and the establishment under the new By-Laws of a Com- 
mittee on the Budget and a Committee on Long-Range Planning. 
Chairman Crowley, for the Committee, recommended the election 
of the following Trustees to the two new committees: 

Committee on the Budget : George L. Pumphret, Chairman, 
Reginald Cagle, Robert D. Gordon, Mrs. Eliot S. Knowles, 
Gavin D. Robertson, Mrs. Erline Shearer. 

Committee on Long-Range Planning : Mrs. George R. 
Rowland, Chairman, Gregory R. Anrig, Nicholas K. 
Apostola, Bruce R. Carlson, Nathan Chandler, 
Mrs. 0. Phillip Snowden. 

Chairman Crowley further reported the recommendation of the 
Nominating Committee that Trustee Robert D. Gordon be elected 
Chairman of the Committee on Finance and Trustee Alan Shaler be 
elected Chairman of the Committee on Student Affairs. He indi- 
cated that Trustee Shaler wished Trustee Haigis to be added to 
the Committee on Student Affairs, but said that this matter 
would be carried over for disposition by Chairman Healey. Upon 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Committee membership changes recom- 
mended by the Nominating Committee, as reported 
by Chairman Crowley. 

Acting Chairman Crowley noted that this action con- 
cluded the formal agenda and asked whether there was any further 
business to come before the Board. Trustee Rowland asked Trustee 
Knowles about progress on the Fine Arts Building at the UM/Amherst 
campus; Trustee Knowles said that progress was such that an open- 
ing of the building might be expected in the spring of 1974.

Provost Gluckstern ventured to amend this estimate by suggesting 
that, while the building would be generally ready by late spring, 
a formal opening might not be possible until early fall. Presi- 
dent Wood then asked Provost Gluckstern to report briefly on 
the Library at UM/Amherst; Provost Gluckstern said that the move 
into the Library on the Amherst campus has been completed and 
that Library operations are proceeding satisfactorily. Trustee 
Chandler asked about the status of the capital outlay budget. 
President Wood replied that the emergency capital outlay budget, 
including minor changes only, was now available, and that the 
regular capital outlay budget was not yet in hand. Trustee 
Shaler brought to the attention of the Board of Trustees a letter 
he had received from Representative Louis J. Morini of the General 
Court saying that he had received many complaints from his con- 
stituency with regard to the new parking plan adopted by the Board 
of Trustees, and voicing his own opposition to that plan. Acting 
Chairman Crowley thanked Trustee Shaler, said that the Trustees 
are always happy to hear from legislators, but that it should be 
noted the Board has acted upon this matter. President Wood then 
reported briefly that the Executive Committee had. reviewed 
candidates for the University Medal for Outstanding Service, 
would give the matter further study in the immediate future, and 
hoped to conclude its deliberations in time for action by the 
Board of Trustees at its October meeting. Trustee Knowles ob- 
served that development of the University Medal was a matter of 
great credit to Trustee Rowland. 

There being no other business to come before the meet- 
ing, the meeting was adjourned at 11:30 a.m.

Chairman Healey stated that the Trustees were pleased 
to be present at the Columbia Point campus for their first regu- 
lar meeting at that location, and said that he wished to extend 
to Chancellor Golino and all members of the Columbia Point cam- 
pus community the good wishes of the Board of Trustees. The 
Chairman then asked President Wood for the presentation of 
reports under the Presidential agenda. 

President Wood spoke of his own pleasure at being at 
the Columbia Point campus with the Trustees at Chancellor Golino 's 
invitation, and asked Chancellor Golino to report for the campus. 

Chancellor Golino welcomed the Trustees, saying that 
the existence of the campus is a tribute to the hard work of the 
Board. He then reported on his first two months in office and 
outlined major issues he believes the campus will face in the 
months ahead. In reporting, Chancellor Golino noted that this 
year there are more students, more faculty, and more diverse 
programs at the Boston campus. He mentioned his concern for 
further development of relationships among the individual colleges 
and between the colleges and the central administration of the 
campus. He reported progress in organization of the centralized 
administration, and indicated that he should be able to present 
a recommendation of appointment of a Vice Chancellor for Student 
Affairs at the November meeting of the Board. Chancellor Golino 
commented favorably on progress toward full readiness of the 
physical plant at Columbia Point, and noted steps be taken toward 
a satisfactory link between the campus and public transportation, 
commented on arrangements to maintain security on the campus, and 
spoke of positive steps taken in connection with housing and 
hiring. He enumerated other issues and opportunities the Boston 
campus faces, and in ending, observed that "it is time for amaz- 
ingly hard work and a time of intense pressure. It is also a 
time of great challenge, a time to have an impact on public educa- 
tion in this city and the Commonwealth." 

President Wood thanked Chancellor Golino, and then 
asked Chancellor Bromery to report for the Amherst campus. Chan- 
cellor Bromery greeted and welcomed Chancellor Golino for UM/ 
Amherst, and reported briefly. With regard to the faculty col- 
lective bargaining election, he said that an election would be 
held at the Campus Center, November 15-16, and that every member 
of the faculty should have an opportunity to vote. Chancellor 
Bromery reported that the Board of Trustees' Statement on Uni- 
versity Governance is being implemented at the campus level, 
that the fall convocation had been held in cooperation with four 
governance units, and that the budgeting process reflects the 
entrance of the Amherst campus on a new phase of consolidation 
and judicious management. Chancellor Bromery ended by giving 
the Trustees a report of the trip to Cairo taken by himself and 
Counsel Myers in September to further acquisiton of the papers

of W.E.B. DuBois, and said that the trip had been successful, 
resulting in the presence of a large body of papers now in the 
Special Collections section of the new library at Amherst. 

President Wood then spoke to the Trustees briefly 
about the budget for Fiscal Year 1975 and two appointments. He 
said that the University request for Fiscal Year 1975 totals 
99.874 million dollars, which is a 14.5 percent increase over 
the Fiscal Year 1974 anticipated expenditures of 87.2 million 
dollars. President Wood commented that, in developing the budget, 
strict guidelines were imposed, limiting administrative staff 
increases, non-personnel administrative expenses, and travel. 
He said that the budget will provide sufficient faculty to main- 
tain the quality of educational programs in all three campuses, 
essential support staff for academic and non-academic programs, 
limiting funding for increased library acquisitions and student 
financial aid programs, and other features. He stated that the 
budget had been carefully developed under stringent management 
controls, and that it represented a stable and responsible posi- 
tion for Board consideration. President Wood reported the ap- 
pointment of Professor John S. Saloma III to serve as Advisor 
to Intern Programs throughout the University; he also reported 
the appointment of Dean Dwight Allen to serve as Advisor on Educa- 
tional Innovation and Change, both within the University as a 
whole and to the Joint Operations Committee of the Land Grant 
Universities of New England. President Wood said that Professor 
Saloma' s background both in political science and in practical 
politics, together with his completion of a University-wide sur- 
vey of present intern programs and needs, uniquely qualified him 
to advise the University in this regard. President Wood com- 
mented that Dean Allen's record of leadership in educational in- 
novation particularly suited him to give advice on this matter 
in higher education both within the University and in the New 
England region. He said that he was happy to fill these impor- 
tant assignments from within the existing staff of the University 
without requiring additional budgeted appointments. 

Chairman Healey then asked for reports of the Standing 
Committees, inviting Trustee Gordon first to report for the Com- 
mittee on Finance. Chairman Gordon said that the Committee had 
proposals to make in connection with the development of transpor- 
tation linkage between the Columbia Point campus and the nearest 
MBTA station. He commented that the campus administration has 
given its attention to the critical and immediate problem of 
providing shuttle bus service between the campus and the Columbia 
Point Station — a distance of about one mile — for the opening of 
regular classes in January 1974. 

On September 25 the Chancellor gave President Wood 
recommendations which include: (1) the possibility of contracting 
with a private carrier rather than the MBTA, and (2) using the

revenues generated by the campus parking garages to pay the cost 
of the facilities and services associated with a bus shuttle 
system. Chairman Gordon said that initial estimates of costs and 
revenues suggest that a reasonable parking fee could cover both 
bus chartering costs and terminal facilities and arrangements 
required at Columbia Station. Negotiation between the campus 
administration and the MBTA produced in September general cost-of- 
service figures based on only two variations in service level. 
Informal explorations by Dr. Golino with private carriers suggest 
that these might be able to offer more flexible service, which 
could entail costs lower than those estimated by the MBTA. The 
proposed system is in keeping with the transportation policies 
accepted in principle by the Board of Trustees on June 6, 1973, 
and the use of parking fees to underwrite bus service as precedent 
in the new University of Massachusetts/Amherst transportation 
and parking system. 

Chairman Gordon said that the Committee on Finance, 
which has reviewed the situation with President Wood and Chancellor 
Golino, recommends authorizing Chancellor Golino to proceed to 
secure formal bids from private carriers as well as the MBTA. 
He said that the Committee feels that the specifications for these 
bids are very important in defining and putting together an ade- 
quate and flexible system. Chairman Gordon said that it is 
expected that President Wood will review such specifications with 
the Chancellor before they ar"e put forward for bids. When formal 
bids have been received and evaluated, the campus will prepare a 
more detailed budget which reflects the several costs of operating 
the bus system and parking garage, the proposed fee structure, and 
projected revenue. It is anticipated there will be a review of 
these questions at the October 23 meeting of the Committee on 
Finance, at which time the Commitee also will consider Chancellor 
Golino 's request for the establishment of a Trust Fund to provide 
the mechanism for handling the receipts and payments necessary to 
operate the system. Upon motion made and seconded it was 

VOTED : That the Chancellor of the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston be authorized to solicit bids, 
in accordance with specifications approved by the 
President of the University, from private carriers 
as well as the Massachusetts Bay Transportation 
Authority, to provide bus service and attendant 
transportation facilities for travel between the 
campus and the Columbia Point Station or a place 
in close proximity thereto. 

and upon motion made and seconded it was

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



VOTED : That the Chancellor of the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston be asked to present to the 
Finance Committee by October 23 his recommenda- 
tions and a detailed budget relative to the cost 
and method of financing a transportation system. 

Chairman Healey then asked Trustee Pumphret to report 
for the Committee on the Budget. Chairman Pumphret first described 
to the Board of Trustees the Fiscal Year 1975 Maintenance Budget 
Request (Doc. T74-022) , saying that it had been reviewed by the 
Committee on the Budget and was now presented with recommendation 
for its approval by the Trustees. Chairman Pumphret commented 
that the budget is a minimal funding request which not only 
reflects the fiscal position of the Commonwealth, but also 
reflects the determination of the University to apply modern 
management and program practices in the conduct of its affairs. 

Upon motion made and seconded it was 

VOTED : To approve the maintenance budget request for 
Fiscal Year 1975 of a total of $99,874,485.00. 

Chairman Pumphret turned next to the question of Fiscal 
Year 1974 Operating Budget Revisions (Doc. T74-024) , with the 
recommendation of the Committee on the Budget that these revisions 
be approved. He said that the revisions reflect the actual State 
appropriations which were not precisely known at the time the 
operating budget was prepared, and that proposed transfers are 
necessary to reconcile the State appropriation to the Fiscal 
Year 1974 expenditure plan for each subsidiary account. Upon 
motion made and seconded it was 

VOTED : To revise the allocation of state funds by sub- 
sidiary account for Fiscal Year 1974 as presented 
in Document T74-013 to accommodate anticipated 
expenditures. Should other adjustments to State 
expenditures occur, the President may approve 
further overall revisions in the expenditure 
plans of the campuses provided that these adjust- 
ments shall be reported to the Trustee Budget 
Committee. 

Chairman Pumphret thereafter presented the recommenda- 
tion of the Committee on the Budget with regard to Merit Incre- 
ment Policy (Doc. T74-023) , and asked for approval of this policy 
statement. He said that the policy statement on merit had been 
formulated within recommendations developed at the campus level 
and represented principles advanced by the President as guidelines. 
President Wood commented that the Merit Increment Policy statement 
is an effort to distinguish between awards for increased experi- 
ence and competence and awards for distinguished service in the

period of the past year, and to make sure that all service, not 
only academic, is acknowledged and that affirmative action 
standards are upheld in the matter of merit. 



After discussion and upon motion made and seconded it 



was 



VOTED : In view of the need to serve the many purposes 
for which the University merit increase appro- 
priations were intended the President is 
authorized to implement the Merit Increment 
Pay Plan for professional employees up to a 
maximum State-funded expenditure of $792,115.00 
and is authorized to implement merit increases 
for professional employees paid from non-state 
funds at a comparable rate. 

Upon motion made and seconded it was also 

VOTED : Authority is hereby delegated to the President 
to classify those professional positions for 
which a specific weekly salary rate or a 
limited weekly salary range presently exists 
solely as required to permit the implementation, 
effective February 3, 1974, of the merit 
increase recommendations of the President, 
the Chancellors, and the Dean of the Medical 
School. 

Chairman Healey then asked Trustee Rowland to report 
for the Committee on Long-Range Planning. Chairman Rowland noted 
that her place on the agenda was not, as theretofore, entirely 
last on the list of Committees to report, and asked that the 
record show this step forward in application of Affirmative 
Action standards within the Board of Trustees itself. Chairman 
Rowland reported that the first meeting of the Long-Range Plan- 
ning Committee was devoted to looking at the Committee's charge, 
its potential agenda, and the procedures for its operation. She 
said that she did not anticipate that the Committee on Long-Range 
Planning would be coming to the Board with frequent requests for 
action. Instead, she suggested, the Committee might not be back 
all year. Chairman Rowland said that she and the President wished 
to protect the opportunity for the Committee on Long-Range Planning 
to look at long-term issues and directions freely and openly 
without pressures for immediate decision. She commented that the 
Committee would be inviting the Chancellors and senior staff to 
meet with it when the agenda touches their concerns, but said 
that on the whole the Committee will seek to keep its meetings 
small and informal. Chairman Rowland spoke of the assistance 
given to the Committee by Vice President Robinson, and said that 
she was pleased about the possibilities for the Committee 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



and convinced that it can be supportive of the work of other Com- 
mittees and of the University. 

In beginning his report for the Executive Committee, 
Chairman Healey asked Chancellor Bromery to address the matter 
of Alcoholic Beverages: Proposed Trustee Policy Statement (Doc. 
T74-021) which had been prepared at UM/Amherst. Chancellor 
Bromery reviewed the earlier policy statement of the Trustees 
on the matter of Alcoholic Beverages voted on November 14, 1969, 
and said the changes since that date, particularly including 
legislation which has reduced the legal age for consumption of 
alcoholic beverages from 21 to 18, make it necessary for 
University policy to be revised. He said that, pending develop- 
ment of a final policy statement suitable for the University as 
a whole, it was recommended that the Trustees take favorable 
action to allow the proposal to be established as provisional 
policy. Chairman Healey reported the favorable action of the 
Executive Committee on such a recommendation, and indicated that 
he would ask the Committee on Student Affairs to review new 
University-wide guidelines as they are prepared, for later 
referral to the Executive Committee and the Board. Trustee 
Apostola said that he and other students at UM/Amherst look 
forward to student participation in the development of regula- 
tions and guidelines as an important first step in their 
participation in the implementation of the Statement on Governance. 

Upon motion made and seconded it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Vice Chancellor for Student 
Affairs at the Amherst campus to prepare for 
submission to the Board of Trustees regulations 
relative to the possession, consumption, and 
sale of alcoholic beverages. Such regulations 
shall be consistent with all applicable laws 
of the Commonwealth and any applicable regula- 
tions of the Alcoholic Beverages Control 
Commission, and shall designate those 
geographic locations where the possession, 
consumption, or sale of alcoholic beverages 
is prohibited. 

Upon further motion made and seconded it was 

VOTED : The proposed regulations dated August 15, 1973, 

(Doc. T74-021) are to serve as provisional policy 
while new regulations are being prepared, and the 
Vice Chancellor is authorized and directed to 
consult and confer with appropriate student 
government bodies and other organizations in the 
formulation of regulations relative to the 
possession, consumption, and sale of alcoholic 
beverages at the Amherst campus.

Chairman Healey then reported on action recommended to 
the Trustees with regard to First Award of the University Medal 
for Outstanding Service (Doc. T74-025) . He said that he was 
happy to report that, after long consideration, it was felt that 
the First Award of the University Medal should be made to two 
distinguished professors, whose great services to the University 
over the years were known and respected by all who are acquainted 
with this institution. He identified first Professor Thomas N. 
Brown of UM/Boston, Chairman of the Department of History, College 
II, at that campus and its elected Faculty Representative to the 
Board of Trustees. Chairman Healey commented on Professor Brown's 
outstanding record of service at Boston and his numerous significant 
contributions to that campus and the University as a whole. He 
identified further Professor Seymour Shapiro of UM/ Amherst, saying 
that Professor Shapiro as a teacher, as Head of the Botony 
Department, as Acting Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, 
as a major faculty leader during the difficult decade of change 
and growth in the 1960 's and as Faculty Representative to the 
Board of Trustees, had given great service to the University. 
Chairman Healey therefore asked the Board of Trustees to make the 
First Award of the University Medal for Outstanding Service jointly 
to Professors Brown and Shapiro, with the understanding that this 
was in recognition of their service to the University as a whole, 
and that a dual award would not set a precedent for the future. 
Upon motion made and seconded it was 

VOTED : That, in view of their many and distinguished 

contributions to the development of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, the Board of Trustees 
award the University Medal for Outstanding 
Service to Professor Thomas N. Brown and Pro- 
fessor Seymour Shapiro jointly, with presenta- 
tion of the award at a suitable occasion this 
fall. 

President Wood, in applauding this action of the Board of Trustees, 
commented that he was delighted by it, and that both Professors 
Brown and Shapiro were outstanding to him for their objectivity, 
fairness, professional integrity, and "occasional sympathy". 

There being no further business to come before the 
Board of Trustees, the meeting was adjourned at 3:20 p.m.

Commonwealth that have been completed during the past year. In 
addition, he presented his own observations on the implications of 
these studies for the University of Massachusetts and public higher 
education in the State. 

He noted first what he regarded as the positive implica- 
tions of the several studies in contributing to better understanding 
and support of higher education. In addition, President Wood 
expressed concern about the implications of the several studies in 
two specific areas. In connection with higher education constructioji 
programs, he felt that the "cautious and bearish" conclusions of 
the studies might be read as supporting a delay in critical capital 
outlay programs. Regarding a call for tuition increases in the 
public sector offered by two of the studies, President Wood also 
expressed concern. He observed that proposals to increase tuition 
in the public sector, without considering the basis for supporting 
higher education in general, can only result in reduced access to 
colleges and universities. 

While commending the several studies, President Wood con- 
cluded by commenting that complicated issues involving both the 
private and public sectors in higher education need to be further 
defined and comprehensive negotiations continued, with the under- 
standing that no final answers are yet at hand. 



After summarizing his statement, President Wood asked 
Chancellor Bromery to report for UM/Amherst. Chancellor Bromery 
noted that an election will take place November 15-16 on the 
Amherst campus to determine whether or not the faculty wish to be 
represented by a union rather than by a shared form of governance. 
He said that a vigorous campaign has been waged by MSP-MTA-AAUP in 
support of unionization, and by the Committee of Concerned Faculty 
in opposition to the union and in support of the newly adopted 
governance document. Chancellor Bromery said that he believes that 
the issue at stake in the election is of vital concern to the 
faculty and may be the most important decision they will have to 
make in some time to come. Chancellor Bromery observed that two 
of the major points raised by the pro-union people are no tenure- 
quotas and merit salary adjustments . 

The Chancellor said that his own concern has been two-fold 
First, to be sure that all faculty members be fully informed on the 
issues before voting, and second, that all faculty members vote, 
since the outcome will be determined by a simple majority of those 
voting. He said that he believes that there is a potential for 
devisiveness and developing animosities and loss of collegiality 
among the faculty if the decision — in either direction — is by a 
small margin. He reported his hope, therefore, that the turnout 
for the election will be large and the result decisive. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



At the President's request, Chancellor Golino reported 
briefly for UM/Boston, stating that the overriding concern of his 
administration and the campus at this point is to complete prepa- 
ration for an orderly and efficient move to the Columbia Point 
campus in January. Chancellor Golino said that planning has been 
thorough, that preparation has been going forward well and that it 
appears the move, while difficult and complex, will be well-managed 

Dean Soutter replied to the President's request for a 
report on UM/Worcester by informing the Board that approximately 
one-third of the operations of the Medical School have now moved 
into the new Medical Science building. He said that the further 
transfer of operations to the new facility seems likely to proceed 
on schedule. 

Chairman Healey then reported for the Executive Committee 
and for the Executive Session of the Board of Trustees which had 
been held prior to the formal meeting of this date. The Chairman 
noted that the Executive Committee and the Board in Executive 
Session had undertaken and completed a thorough consideration of 
nominations for Honorary Degrees to be awarded at the UM/ Amherst 
1974 Commencement. He reported that the Trustees had reached 
agreement on a list of candidates, and asked that their agreement 
reached in Executive Session be confirmed. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees confirm as candidates 

for Honorary Degrees to be awarded at the UM/Amherst 
1974 Commencement those persons agreed upon in 
Executive Session of the Board of this date and 
instruct the Chancellor of the campus to proceed 
with necessary arrangements. 

Chairman Healey then asked for reports of the Standing 
Committees, inviting Trustee Troy first to report for the Committee 
on Faculty and Educational Policy. Chairman Troy reported that the 
Committee had met on October 15, 1973, and that the first item of 
business had been consideration of the Graduation Lists, September 1 
1973, UM/Amherst (Doc 



T74-027) , presented by Chancellor Bromery. 
The Lists included Degree recommendations for undergraduate, 
graduate, and continuing education students, most of whom had com- 
pleted their requirements over the past summer. Chairman Troy said 
that the lists represented a relatively equal distribution of 
degrees awarded with honors across the various disciplines, as well 
as an increase in the percentage of students receiving degrees with 
honors. Chairman Troy commented that Chancellor Bromery attributed 
these characteristics to the better preparation and motivation of 
the students admitted at the Amherst campus, and observed that he 
would not seriously quarrel with the Chancellor's optimistic 
assessment .

Chairman Troy said that the Committee in general discussio l 
had asked for information on the number of students who now go 
through college in three rather than four years, and said that he 
had raised the question of a possible three-year pre-medical course 
for undergraduates, the first year of medical school work being 
considered the senior year of undergraduate study. He commented 
that this would enable the medical student to save a full year of 
study, but that such a program for pre-medical work would have to 
be most carefully drawn to avoid narrowness and undue emphasis on 
scientific studies during the first three years. Chairman Troy said 
that these are matters that will be studied over the coming months. 
Upon motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve the Graduation 
Lists of September 1, 1973, UM/ Amherst, as 
certified by the University Recorder and contained 
in Document T74-027. 

Chairman Troy then turned to the Agreement Between the 
University of Massachusetts and the Albert-Ludwigs-University , 
Freiburg, Germany , (Doc . T74-026) , and reviewed the history of the 
University's relationship with Freiburg over the past decade. 
Chairman Troy said that the relationship with Freiburg had first 
been established on a rather tentative basis but that over the years 
it has evolved into a more clearly defined and complex program. He 
said that experience has led to a greater emphasis upon cooperation 
in graduate study, although well- qualified undergraduates may still 
participate. He said that the program under the proposed agreement 
would now be open to all segments of the University of Massachusetts 
not just to Amherst, that the agreement covers a period of five 
years, and that near the end of that time it may be reconsidered 
for further extension. 

The proposed agreement places the relationship with 
Freiburg on an official basis not only with the University of 
Freiburg, but also with the Ministry of Education in Baden- 
Wurttemberg, the German state in which Freiburg is located. Chair- 
man Troy said that the agreement may enable the two Universities 
to seek financial support from funding agencies in Germany; he noted 
that in 1973-74, there are faculty exchanges in English, Slavic 
studies, and polymer science, and that in the Spring of 1974, a 
Professor of History from Freiburg will be teaching at Amherst. 
Chairman Troy noted that Dean Mortimer Appley of the UM/ Amherst 
Graduate School is teaching Psychology at Freiburg this fall. 

Chairman Troy said that the agreement on which he would 
ask the Trustees to vote simply puts the stamp of approval on what 
has already been proved to be a successful and distinguished 
on-going program. He said that we owe a debt to those who, like 
Professor Frederick Ellert, have in the past worked long and hard 
to make this program possible. Chairman Troy observed that the 
Freiburg program has proved to be an enriching experience for the 
University's students and faculty and urged approval of the proposed 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



agreement. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt the Comprehensive Agreement and Supple- 
mentary Articles Between the University of 
Massachusetts and Albert-Ludwigs-Universitaet 
im Breisgau, as contained in Document T74-026. 

Chairman Troy reported further that, at the Committee 
meeting of October 15, there had been a substantial and fruitful 
discussion of the relationship between public and private institu- 
tions of higher education in Massachusetts, and that he expected 
this discussion to lead to further study and the development of 
relevant materials for the Board. In this connection, Chairman 
Troy presented a statement of views which is attached in full to 
these Minutes as Addendum B. 

In connection with this subject, Trustee Robertson asked 
how facts developed with regard to tuition charges, and differen- 
tials between public and private tuition might be related to 
Trustee consideration of policy. Chairman Healey responded that 
the question of tuition is a continuing problem to which Trustees 
must respond and that any member of the Board can raise specific 
questions and options with regard to tuition as policy matters. 
Trustee Robertson commented that, after further study, he would 
like to do so. Trustee Crowley inquired as to whether the Board 
is committed to present tuition levels for both the current 
academic year and the one following. President Wood replied that 
the existing commitment covers only the current academic year, and 
that the tuition question is therefore an appropriate matter for 
review and possible action in the present period. 

Chairman Healey then recognized Trustee Knowles, asking 
her to report for the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. Chairman 
Knowles spoke first of the Committee meeting of October 17, 1973, 
held in the offices of Benjamin Thompson Associates, Cambridge, 
Massachusetts. She said that one of the purposes of the meeting 
was to view a model of the Columbia Point peninsula, showing various 
possibilities for development of that location. She observed that 
the work of the Thompson firm is the University's contribution to 
the Mayor's Committee on the Development of the Peninsula, a multi- 
agency undertaking still in a very flexible stage. 

Chairman Knowles commented on Phase II construction at 
the Columbia Point campus — including College III and College IV, 
the gymnasium, and the arts and sciences building (080/2) . She 
said that working drawings on Building 030 and the gymnasium are 
nearly complete, and that these buildings could go through in the 
emergency capital outlay appropriation. Chairman Knowles observed 
that Phase I construction at UM/Boston is coming to a conclusion, 
but that it is essential that contractors be reminded of the

urgency of completing the buildings in time for the beginning of 
the next semester. Chairman Knowles spoke briefly of the shuttle 
bus transportation system proposed at the Columbia Point campus, 
noting her Committee's review of plans in this regard. 

Chairman Knowles then reviewed progress and problems 
within her Committee's purview at UM/Worcester . She commented on 
the delay in receipt of interior elevations for the teaching 
hospital and alternative designs for the large interior courtyard, 
noting that these two items will be considered at the next meeting 
of the Committee. She said that the hospital is still on schedule, 
which will permit starting of the clinics in the Spring and the 
hospital in the Summer of 1975. Chairman Knowles noted that the 
Board of Trustees had voted in September to accept the site design 
for the area around the teaching hospital and the Medical School, 
which includes a possible site for a two-stage parking garage. She 
stated that there are three possible ways of constructing such a 
garage; (1) through capital outlay, (2) through the Building 
Authority, or (3) through some leasing arrangement with a private 
firm. She said that no analysis has yet been made of the economics 
or the precise location of the parking facility, and that it has 
been suggested that the University request the University of Massa- 
chusetts Building Authority to conduct a feasibility study which 
could answer many of the questions that still remain. Chairman 
Knowles reported that the Committee recommended such a request for 
a feasibility study and asked for a vote in this connection. Upon 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That President Wood be and he hereby is authorized 
in the name and behalf of the Board of Trustees 
to make a written request pursuant to Chapter 773 
of the Acts of 1960 of the Commonwealth of Massa- 
chusetts, as amended, to the University of Massa- 
chusetts Building Authority that said authority 
undertake a project to consist of planning and 
construction by said authority of facilities for 
the parking of vehicles at the University of 
Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester; and 
that said project is hereby determined to be 
designed primarily to provide facilities for the 
use of University students, staff, and dependents. 

Chairman Knowles then reported briefly on an informal 
session held by the Committee in the form of a "mini-retreat" at 
the Sheraton-Lexington Inn on October 30. She said that the 
session, without pressure for decisions, had allowed for a thought- 
ful discussion of physical plant and site planning and development 
at the three campuses and for the University as a whole. 

Chairman Healey turned next to the Committee on Finance 
and asked Trustee Pumphret, who had acted as Chairman in the 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



absence of Trustee Gordon, to report for that Committee. Trustee 
Pumphret said that the Committee had met on October 31, and again 
on this date to consider recommendations made by Chancellor Golino 
for the establishment and operation of a shuttle bus system con- 
necting the MBTA Columbia Station and the Columbia Point campus. 
Trustee Pumphret commended Chancellor Golino and his staff for the 
thoroughness of their preparation of materials relative to the 
matter at hand (Doc. T74-034 and Doc. T74-034A) , and said that the 
Committee, in consequence, wished to present five related items to 
the Board of Trustees for action. After discussion, and upon 
motions made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees authorize the Chancellor 
of the University of Massachusetts at Boston to 
establish and implement an integrated transporta- 
tion and parking system as outlined in Document 
T74-034, as approved by the Committee on Finance, 
the parking fee not to exceed $1.50 per vehicle 
per day; 

and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees authorize the estab- 
lishment of a Transportation and Parking Trust 
Fund for the purpose of receiving income from 
the transportation and parking system at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston, and to pay 
the expenses thereof in accordance with Univer- 
sity Accounting Policy as established by the 
Treasurer of the University;

to provide shuttle bus service for the University

and eligible bidder after consultation with the 
Chairman of the Board, the President, the Treasurer 
of the University, and the Chairman of the Finance 
Committee, said contract to be in general accordance 
with the bids received October 23, 1973, on 
specifications entitled "Contract for Shuttle

(2) Authorize the Chancellor of the University 
of Massachusetts at Boston or his designee to

the name of the University. 

(3) Direct the Treasurer of the University to 
advance from the Trustee Trust Fund Interest 
Reserve the necessary funds against future 
revenues to the Transportation and Parking 
Trust Fund for immediate construction and pro- 
vision of all facilities necessary for the 
system to be made operational; 

and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees authorize the Chancellor 
of the University of Massachusetts at Boston, or 
his designee, for the purpose of providing a turn- 
around and boarding and departure area for shuttle 
bus service to the campus at Columbia Point, as 
more particularly set forth in Trustee Document 
T74-034, to negotiate a lease of approximately 
32,000 square feet of land owned by the Gulf Oil 
Corporation and situated near the Columbia Station, 
said lease term to commence about January 1, 1974, 
and expire on or about June 30, 1978. Further, that 
the Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston, after consultation with the Treasurer 
of the University, be empowered and authorized to 
execute a lease arrangement for and on behalf of 
the University and in furtherance of said purpose 
upon successful completion of said negotiations. 

Trustee Cagle asked that the record show that, because of 
his reservations concerning certain activities of the Gulf Oil 
Corporation, he could not support the fifth vote noted immediately 
above, even though he understood the necessity for the shuttle bus 
service located at the Columbia Station. 

Trustee Pumphret then reported briefly on the University 
of Massachusetts Endowment Fund: Proposed Investment Program ,

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



October 31, 1973 (Doc. T74-035) , saying that in consonance with 
Board policy, the Committee had authorized the Treasurer of the 
University to sell 200 shares of Dupont stock and, with the proceeds 
of that sale and from available cash, to purchase the following 
securities: Goodyear 200 shares 

Honeywell 100 shares 

IBM 25 shares 

Nabisco 200 shares 

RCA 200 shares 

Motorola 500 shares 

Trustee Pumphret next reported on the Class of 1973 Class 
Gift, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-032) . He stated that the gift is to 
help alleviate the cost of new equipment to assist physically 
disabled students on the Amherst campus, and cited an initial 
class commitment of $4000 to be followed by a later sum of $1750 
to $2000 and stated that the Fund would be expended so as to 
reflect a conspicuous contribution by the Class of 1973. In 
response to Trustee Pumphret 's report on this matter, and upon 
rootion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees accept the gift of 
$4000 and such other funds as may be donated 
by the Class of 1973 to the Amherst Campus 
Advisory Committee for Disabled Students. 

And upon motion made and seconded, it was further 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve the deposit 
of these funds in the Advisory Committee for 
Disabled Students Trust Fund (No. 08-024120) . 
to be expended in accordance with the recom- 
mendations of the Advisory Committee for 
Disabled Students and the approval of the 
Director, University Health Services. 

Trustee Pumphret next reported on the Jeff Morgan Memorial 
Scholarship Fund, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-029) . Trustee Pumphret and 
Treasurer Johnson described the circumstances of the development 
of the Fund, saying that it had been established in memory of a 
young musician who had a strong interest in the University, even 
though he had not been able to attend this institution prior to 
his death in an automobile accident. Treasurer Johnson said that 
the family of Jeff Morgan wished very much to memorialize their 
son through the Fund and that it is likely they will add to it in 
the future. In the response to recommendation of the Committee, 
a nd upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To accept the Jeff Morgan Scholarship Fund, in 
the amount of $3,015 as an Endowment Fund for 
the purpose of regularly awarding one or more

scholarships of $150.00 to an incoming freshman

during the fiscal year shall be returned to 
principal on June 30. Benefits from this fund 
are restricted to students in attendance at the 
Amherst campus. 

The proposed Temporary Use of North Village (Project XIII ) 
Apartments, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-031) was then discussed by 
Trustee Pumphret. He stated that because of apartment vacancies 
existing in North Village and the need to use them as dormitory 
facilities, the Committee recommended appropriate action by the 
Board. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That, if adopted by the University of Massachu- 
setts Building Authority, vacant apartments at 
North Village (UMBA Project XIII) may from time 
to time, and at the discretion of the Chancellor 
at the Amherst campus, be filled by students who 
have applied for residence in dormitory housing 
but have been unable to obtain such residence due 
to temporary oversubscription. The rate will be 
that charged to the largest number of students 
residing in dormitory housing and will cover the 
period of the normal school year only. The rate 
provides for furnishing of the apartments by the 
University in a manner equivalent to that 
supplied in a dormitory room. 

Trustee Pumphret then presented the Committee's recom- 
mendation for an Increase in the Student Activities Tax (Index 
Funding) , UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-033) . He stated that this would 
amend an earlier vote of the Board of Trustees establishing the 
undergraduate Student Activities Fee for the 1973-74 academic year 
at UM/Amherst. Trustee Pumphret noted that the undergraduate 
student body at Amherst had voted by referendum to fund the under- 
graduate student yearbook — The Index — from the Student Activities 
Fee rather than from sales, as had originally been planned, and 
that the only way for this to be accomplished is through a $3.00 
increase in that fee for the second semester of the current academic 
year. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees, acting at the request 
of the undergraduate Student Senate, amend its 
vote of June 6, 1973, relative to the establish- 
ment of a Student Activities Fee at UM/Amherst 
as follows: 

The Student Activities Fee for the second semester 
of the 1973-74 academic year, previously 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



authorized at $23.50, shall be set at $26.50. 
This will represent a total yearly Student 
Senate Tax of $48.50, and a fee of $1.50 for 
the Distinguished Visitors Program. 

After the vote, Trustee Apostola commented that the action just 
taken represented the first such to be completed under the new 
governance document . 

Chairman Healey thanked Trustee Pumphret, and then turned 
to Trustee Rowland, asking her to report as Chairman of the Commit- 
tee on Long-Range Planning. Chairman Rowland said that the Commit- 
tee had met for the second time on October 24 and had had an 
extremely useful discussion on two issues: public-private 
cooperation and enrollment planning. Both of these issues, she 
said, have particular relevance to the Boston campus, because of its 
location in the midst of a large private university complex, and 
because it will absorb most of the growth of the University of 
Massachusetts over the next decade. 

Chairman Rowland said that in the course of Committee 
discussion members have become increasingly aware both of the need 
for more data and of the limitations of data — of those areas of 
purpose and policy in which numbers alone cannot provide the 
answers. She said that she believed the Committee would be inclinec 
to move further on both fronts — the analytical and the philosophical 
Chairman Rowland commented that the Committee also will continue to 
explore ways in which the Board of Trustees can have a continuing 
contribution at all stages of the planning process, not simply at 
the point when a completed "package" is presented. She said that 
one technique which may be used may be that of working papers that 
may be shared back and forth between the Trustees and the campuses. 
Chairman Rowland also observed that at some point the Committee may 
well propose an agenda for "Hyannis III" — a third retreat for the 
full Board. She noted that the Long-Range Planning Committee will 
be meeting again in the current month. 

After thanking Trustee Rowland, Chairman Healey asked 
Trustee Boyden to report for the Committee on Student Affairs in 
the absence of Trustee Shaler. As he began, Trustee Boyden men- 
tioned informally to the Trustees his recent visit to agricultural 
units of the University in South Deerfield, saying that the visit 
had been both instructive for him and appreciated by University 
personnel. He urged other Trustees to consider visiting such 
installations on a "drop-in" basis whenever possible. 

In connection with the meeting of the Committee on Student: 
Affairs held on October 18, 1973, Trustee Boyden reported that the 
Committee had reviewed University-wide guidelines on alcoholic 
beverage policy and then had turned to a review of admissions and 
financial aid policies at the three campuses. He indicated that 
the staff assistants from the several campuses had been excellent

support for a profitable discussion, constituting a good first step 
toward more thorough consideration of admissions and financial aid 
programs by the Committee. Trustee Boyden observed in concluding 
that a principal question on the minds of the Committee members is 
whether existing programs are adequately serving student needs. 

Upon conclusion of the report by Trustee Boyden, Chairman 
Healey asked whether there was any other business to come before 
the Board. Trustee Apostola reported briefly on a debate over farm 
and food policies held on October 24 before the Student Senate, 
UM/Amherst, and participated in by representatives of the United 
Farm Workers and Trustee Chandler. He stated that the Student 
Senate had not been moved by the debate to alter its position with 
regard to support of the UFW. 

There being no further business to come before the Board 
of Trustees, the meeting was adjourned at 3:25 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood said that he would be pleased under the Personnel 
Actions item of the Agenda to present for Board concurrence the 
appointment of Dr. Ernest A. Lynton as Senior Vice President for 
Academic Affairs, University of Massachusetts; Commonwealth Professo 
University of Massachusetts with tenure; and Professor of Physics, 
UM/Amherst and UM/Boston. President Wood spoke of Dr. Lynton' s 
career as a scholar and educator, including most recently his 
achievements as the founding Dean of Livingston College, Rutgers 
University. President Wood said that the appointment of Dr. Lynton 
as Senior Vice President would complete the complement of senior 
staff in the Office of the President. Trustee Troy, as Chairman of 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy, warmly endorsed 
the appointment of Dr. Lynton, said that he had had an excellent 
opportunity to become acquainted with the new appointee and regarded 
his selection as an excellent choice by the President. In a second 
comment, President Wood observed that, at a formal dinner on the 
evening of November 26, 1973, the Board of Trustees and their guests 
had joined to honor Professor Thomas Brown of UM/Boston and Professoi 
Seymour Shapiro of UM/Amherst as recipients of the First Award of 
the University Medal for Distinguished Service. This important 
occasion, President Wood commented, was the culmination of Trustee 
Rowland's leadership in establishment of the University Medal by 
the Board of Trustees, and marked the beginning of a significant new 
tradition in the University. 

Following these comments, President Wood asked Chancellor 
Bromery to report for UM/Amherst. Chancellor Bromery began by 
reporting on the results of the faculty collective bargaining 
election which had been held on the Amherst campus November 15-16, 
in which 1404 votes were cast, representing approximately 97 percent 
of the faculty. He said that the results on the question of adoptior 
of collective bargaining were clear (510 yes, 718 no, 174 challenged, 
2 voided), and constitutes an unambiguous expression of the faculty's 
will. He asserted that, while the larger number of "no" votes 
indicated support for the present system of faculty governance, the 
number of "yes" votes provided an indication of the necessity to 
strengthen commitment to the principle of self-government on the 
campus. Chancellor Bromery said that he was proud of the construc- 
tive mood on campus in the weeks following the election, commenting 
that there had been no aftermath of bitterness. Instead, he said 
that he had the clear sense that most faculty members — whether they 
had been pro-union or not during the campaign — were now directing 
their energies to a full implementation of the governance document. 

With regard to the energy crisis, the Chancellor reported 
that, in addition to obvious steps to reduce energy consumption, the 
Amherst campus has undertaken other actions, in particular to put 
the campus as nearly as possible on a minimum energy consumption 
basis from December 21 until January 24. During that period, Chan- 
cellor Bromery said that his aim was to achieve the equivalent of 



3769 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

shutting 60 percent of the academic plant and 75 percent of 
residence hall facilities in order to achieve an additional savings 
of 700,000 gallons of fuel oil and 625,000 kilowatt hours of 
electricity. The Chancellor expressed his belief that inconvenience 
during this brief period would be far less disruptive to the campus' 
academic program than to try to achieve equivalent savings during 
the following semester. 

Chancellor Bromery reported further that the Amherst 
campus had been awarded a $191,950 supplemental grant by the U. S. 
Department of Transportation, enabling the campus to continue and 
expand research on its demonstration transit system through April, 
1974. He said that the University would add $75,742 to the supple- 
mental grant, and that the total of $267,692 would allow continued 
analysis of the changes in traffic in and around the campus since 
the bus system began. The Chancellor said further that the new 
grant money would also pay for three additional buses which have 
been used at peak demand periods since September to bring UMass 
commuters to their campus destinations from parking lots on the 
fringes of the campus. The Chancellor reported, in addition, that 
his staff will plan jointly with the Town of Amherst and Five 
Colleges, Incorporated, to develop long-range bus services for the 
area consistent with plans for the Lower Pioneer Valley Region. 

At President Wood's request, Chancellor Golino then 
reported briefly for UM/Boston. He said first that he had completer 
a search for a candidate for the position of Vice Chancellor for 
Student Affairs at the campus and would be pleased to recommend to 
the President and the Board Mr. Levester Tubbs for this position. 
The Chancellor commented that Mr. Tubbs had long experience in 
student affairs, currently having served for four-and-a-half years 
as dean of students at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, 
Missouri. With regard to further steps taken in preparation for 
full-scale operation of the Columbia Point campus, Chancellor 
Golino said that, at his request, Secretary Cowin had released 
funds for change-orders which are necessary to complete current 
work, and that appropriate steps are being taken to complete 
establishment of the shuttle bus service between Columbia Station 
and the campus. In the latter connection, Chancellor Golino 
reported that he has written a letter of intent to contract with 
the Hudson Company, one of the two low bidders, for such services. 
He said that he expected that the shuttle bus service would be in 
full operation on January 28. 

Dean Soutter responded to the President's request for a 
report on UM/Worcester , by commenting briefly on problems of the 
campus in connection with the conservation of energy. Because of 
the lack of completion of thermostatic controls in the new Medical 
Science Building, it is not yet possible adequately to lower heat 
production during periods of warm weather. In addition, Dean 
Soutter mentioned that HEW requirements for lighting of the new

building were high, resulting in installations difficult to modify. 
The Dean said, however, that in the case of both heating and 
lighting, efforts were being made to reduce energy consumption. 

Chairman Healey then called for reports of the standing 
committees of the Board of Trustees. He recognized first Trustee 
Gordon who reported as Chairman of the Committee on Finance. Chair 
man Gordon said that the Finance Committee had met earlier in the 
day to consider requests for changes in student fees and taxes at 
UM/Amherst. In this connection, assisted by Vice Chancellors 
Campion and Gage, Chairman Gordon brought to the attention of the 
Board three specific matters and discussed them briefly. There- 
after, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees, acting at the request 
of the Graduate Student Senate, amend its Vote 
of December 21, 1970, relative to the establish- 
ment of a Graduate Student Tax, as follows: 

a. The Graduate Student Tax, University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, previously 
authorized at $2.00 per student per 
semester, shall be set at $3.00 per 
student per semester, effective 
September 1, 1973. Said tax shall be 
levied only on full-time graduate 
students. 

b. To effect the retroactive provision of 
the amended Tax, the Graduate Student 
Tax, University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, shall be set at $4.00 per 
student for the second semester of the 
1973-74 academic year only, and there- 
after the $3.00 rate shall be in effect. 
Said tax shall be levied only on full- 
time graduate students.

Further, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees amend its Vote of 

May 2, 1973, relative to the establishment of a 
Dormitory Telephone Service Fee, as follows: 

Effective January 1, 1974, the Dormitory 
Telephone Service Fee, previously author- 
ized at $20.00 per student per semester,

June 6, 1973, relative to the establishment 
of a Stockbridge Senate Tax, as follows: 

Effective January 1, 1974, the Stockbridge 
Senate Tax item of the Stockbridge Student 
Activities Fee, previously authorized at 
$35.00 for the 1973-74 academic year 
($17.50 per semester) is hereby set at

be levied on full-time students of the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture.

Meeting, June 6, 1973, p. 8/ 

Chairman Healey then recognized Trustee Troy, asking him 
to report for the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. 
Chairman Troy summarized business of the Committee conducted at its 
regular meeting of November 20 and at its special meeting of 
December 5 . 

Chairman Troy spoke first of the proposed appointment 
with tenure of two highly distinguished sociologists, Professor 
Alice S. Rossi, and her husband, Professor Peter H. Rossi. Since 
documentation relative to these appointments had been made available 
to the Trustees, Chairman Troy did not review it in detail, but 
reflected his pleasure and that of the Committee at the quality of 
the proposed appointments. He noted that Mrs. Rossi has written 
widely in her field and has recently published a book sponsored by 
the Russell Sage Foundation, entitled Academic Women on the Move ; 
he noted further that Mrs. Rossi is currently National Chairman of 
the AAUP Committee on the Status of Women in the Academic Profession 
With regard to Mr. Rossi, Chairman Troy observed that he had been 
described as, "one of the most distinguished sociologists in the 
United States, 1 ' that he was Professor of Sociology at the University 
of Chicago for 12 years, and has been Professor of Social Relations 
at The Johns Hopkins University since 1967. Chairman Troy added 
that it was the sense of the Committee that the University is 
fortunate in being able to attract the Rossis to the faculty at

UM/Amherst. President Wood agreed, congratulating the Amherst 
faculty on such distinguished appointments. President Wood further 
commented that the University's capacity to attract people of such 
quality makes it important to continue to have flexibility in 
appointment and tenure matters that will allow for such actions. 
Thereafter, upon motion made and seconded, it was, 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees authorize the 
Chancellor, University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, or his designee, to extend an 
offer of employment to Alice S. Rossi as 
Professor of Sociology, with tenure, to the 
Department of Sociology, University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, effective 
September 1, 1974; 

and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees authorize the 
Chancellor, University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, or his designee, to extend an 
offer of employment to Peter H. Rossi as 
Professor of Sociology, with tenure, to the 
Department of Sociology, University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, effective 
September 1, 1974. 

Chairman Troy then reported an agreement that has been 
drawn up between UM/Amherst and Pierce College in Athens, Greece, 
to be in effect for a period of two years. Under the agreement, 
the Pierce College offers a two-year course in Business Administra- 
tion leading to the Master's Degree. Since the courses are taught 
by University of Massachusetts faculty under the agreement, the 
degree is awarded by the University. The program, Chairman Troy 
said, is useful to Greek students and provides University faculty 
with foreign experience. In response to a question from Trustee 
Abrams, Chairman Troy noted that the program agreed upon with 
Pierce College is self-supporting, involving no extra costs to the 
University. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees adopt the "Proposed 

Memorandum of Agreement: Pierce College (Athens, 
Greece) and the University of Massachusetts 
(Amherst)" as contained in Document T74-039. 

Next, Chairman Troy reported that the Committee had 
discussed a proposed transfer of certain units of study in Home 
Economics, UM/Amherst, to other parts of that campus. He said that 
the proposed transfer is the final step in administrative recom- 
mendations to bring food and nutrition subjects together. Comple- 
tion of action on these recommendations eliminates the School of 
Home Economics, although the Division of Home Economics will still 



3773 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



12-5-73 



offer its work, but within the College of Food and Natural 
Resources. In connection with the matters in question, Chairman 
Troy reported the Committee's recommendation for three specific 
votes. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees, acting at the request 
of the Faculty Senate, change the title of the 
School of Home Economics, University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst, to the Division of Home 
Economics, and that all programs, operations and 
activities of the Division be transferred to 
the College of Food and Natural Resources, 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst; 

and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees, acting at the request 
of the Faculty Senate, transfer all programs, 
operations and activities of the Design Area, 
Department of Textiles, Clothing, and Environ- 
mental Art, University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, to the Art Department, Faculty of 
Humanities and Fine Arts, University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst; 

and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees, acting at the request 
of the Faculty Senate, approve the provisional 
affiliation of the Department of Human Development 
with the School of Education for a two-year period. 

Chairman Troy then summarized for the Trustees a report 
on the Institute for Learning and Teaching, UM/Boston, that had 
been presented at the November 20 meeting of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy. He noted that the Institute had 
been established several years ago with generous funding by the 
Ford Foundation. The current academic year will be the last one 
in which the Ford subsidy is available for the Institute; from 
this year forward it will require support by State funds. Chairman 
Troy observed that the original director of the Institute was 
Dr. Gregory Anrig, presently Commissioner of Education of the 
Commonwealth. The present director of the Institute, Dr. James 
Case, stressed to the Committee two basic purposes of the enter- 
prise: to improve the education of urban children by working with 
groups of teachers and administrators in city school systems, and 
to enrich the education of UM/Boston students principally by 
fostering undergraduate programs that involve field experiences in 
city schools and child-serving agencies. Chairman Troy said that 
the Institute program operates principally in the Boston City 
Schools, from which many graduates come to the University, and that

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the Institute also works cooperatively with several academic depart- 
ments of UM/Boston — particularly Sociology — in arranging for field 
work for undergraduates. He said that the staff of the Institue 
is composed of 11 people, and that they make use of adjunct faculty 
and consultants. Altogether, approximately 70 undergraduates of 
Colleges I and II are presently enrolled in programs related to 
the Institute. Chairman Troy observed that, in attempting to 
assist the schools, the members of the Institute focus on situa- 
tions where help of the kind they can bring is genuinely needed, 
as for example in preparing programs in bi-lingual education, or in 
preparing teachers to meet demands in the new "open" schools — 
where teachers face situations for which they may not have had 
training. Chairman Troy commented that, because UM/Boston does not 
have a School of Education, and presumably does not plan to move in 
that direction, it is important to understand that the Institute 
helps the schools themselves through work with their teachers and 
administrators. Chairman Troy said that Chancellor Golino had 
pointed out that the Institute is the campus' only direct means of 
involvement with area schools which send the University many of 
its students, and that he sees it as a highly useful instrument for 
mutual understanding and cooperation between the University and 
urban schools in the preparation of students. Chairman Troy con- 
cluded this section of his report by saying that 9 all in all, the 
Institute's program appears to have proved its worth, and that, with 
more time and experience, it may well prove of substantial value 
both to the University and to the surrounding school systems. 

Chairman Troy then reported that his Committee had con- 
sidered a proposal from the Medical School for changing the title 
of the Department of Community Medicine to the Department of Com- 
munity and Family Medicine. He said that Dr. Saunders had indicatec. 
that the Department of Community Medicine already had done substan- 
tial work in the field of family medicine both in the Medical 
School curriculum and in developing residencies for doctors who wish 
to practice in that field. Chairman Troy said that the field 
emphasizes maintenance of family health and prevention of disease as 
means of increasing the efficiency of health care, and that it 
stresses cooperation with other health care specialists. Chairman 
Troy said that the proposal seemed to the Committee to be both 
valuable and timely. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve a change in the 
name of the Department of Community Medicine, 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester, to become 
the Department of Community and Family Medicine, 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester. 

Chairman Troy noted that a final item of business at the 
Committee's meeting of November 20 had been a discussion of the 
status of faculty recruitment and admissions policies at the Medi- 
cal School. He said that, since a proposal from the Medical School 



377 



o 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

which involves a new policy statement on these matters is closely 
connected with the Affirmative Action policy upon which the 
Trustees voted favorably over a year ago, it seems wise to take up 
this matter in the broad context of Affirmative Action. In conse- 
quence, the Committee on November 20 received reports on Affirmativ^ 
Action progress at all three campuses, using this background as 
context for specific consideration of questions of faculty recruit- 
ment and admissions at UM/Worcester . 

At UM/ Amherst, Chairman Troy pointed out, Affirmative 
Action under the Chancellor is handled by two Vice Chancellors and 
the Deans, assisted by two persons from the Chancellor's Office 
who advise and consult with them. Chairman Troy said that this 
shared responsibility approach appears to be working out very well. 
Within the University, only the Amherst campus thus far has been 
examined formally by HEW in connection with Affirmative Action; 
in general, according to Chairman Troy, the Amherst campus was 
given high marks for its performance in improving the status of 
minorities and women. Chairman Troy noted that at UM/Boston, 
Chancellor Golino is about to appoint an Affirmative Action 
officer who will report directly to him. In Worcester, he said, 
the department chairmen have responsibility in the hiring of 
faculty; the Director of Personnel is responsible at the staff 
level; and the Admissions Committee of the Faculty is responsible 
for the selection of students. At the Office of the President, 
Chairman Troy noted, Vice President Edelman has special responsi- 
bility for Affirmative Action. Chairman Troy commented on the 
different approaches to Affirmative Action taken among the three 
campuses, and observed that time and experience may suggest needed 
change. 

At the November 20 meeting of the Committee on Faculty 
and Educational Policy, establishment of this context was followed 
by discussion of the situation at UM/Worcester and efforts being 
made there to develop more sensitive and varied methods of 
evaluation in both hiring and admission policies. Chairman Troy 
reported that Dean Saunders had presented a statement reflecting 
the ideas of the faculty of the Medical School for the Committee 
to consider. The statement read as follows: "That the Trustees 
approve the admission of a group of applicants, who, because of 
reasons of economic status or minority group status, have been 
educationally deprived and who, therefore, appear to be less well- 
qualified academically than some other applicants. It is presumed 
that most, but not necessarily all, of this group will be members 
of racial minority groups." This statement had been affirmed last 
spring by the Medical School faculty. Chairman Troy noted that 
Dr. Saunders had also stressed that requirements for graduation 
be the same for all students; that is, all students admitted would 
be required to measure up to the admittedly tough requirements of 
any good medical school.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Troy said that substantial discussion had 
followed the presentation by UM/Worcester on November 20, and that 
since that meeting, President Wood had drawn up a statement on 
admissions and hiring policies as they affect minority people at 
the Medical School, summarizing much of what was said at the meeting 
Chairman Troy expressed the hope that all Trustees had read Presi- 
dent Wood's statement, and quoted one paragraph from it: "It is 
clear that the Trustees need to give explicit support to the develop 
ment of admissions procedures and instructional programs which 
acknowledge that present nationally standardized examinations and 
grades do not adequately reflect the innate abilities of applicants 
deprived, by reason of minority status, poverty, or other circum- 
stances, of adequate educational preparation for professional 
careers. As a consequence, potential physicians of competence and 
dedication are not identified and the quality of the educational 
enterprise is impaired." Chairman Troy noted that the Committee 
had met again earlier in the day of December 5, and had considered 
both the statement submitted by President Wood and a proposed vote 
on this matter. Chairman Troy said that, as a result of this 
consideration, the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy 
recommended that the Trustees vote upon a new action policy on 
Affirmative Action at UM/Worcester . 

Chairman Troy said that the Committee felt that such a 
step would be appropriately based on two grounds: (1) on the lower 
ground that the University must meet the standards of fair practice 
called for by HEW rules and guidelines, and (2) more importantly, 
on the ground that the University must act on the principle of 
simple justice based upon an intelligent and imaginative grasp of 
the very real needs of minority and other people in the area of 
medical education to affirm the need of minority people to have 
their own doctors and of young people to seek medicine as a natural 
and normal choice of a career. Chairman Troy said that this view 
is simply another step in the direction of widening the opportuni- 
ties of all citizens which is a central part of our American 
heritage. 

Chairman Troy said that it is, of course, easier to state 
the problem than it is to solve it, but if there is a genuine 
concern, a sense of urgency, and a sustained and intelligent effort 
to seek out able young men and women, and to provide where neces- 
sary supplementary academic help to make up for earlier deficien- 
cies, it should be possible to move forward. He said that medical 
education is not easy; the number of places in medical schools is 
and always has been limited. But it is not only worth trying, but 
necessary that the University try to meet this critical social and 
individual concern. Chairman Troy said that President Wood 
believes that such "actions taken together will enhance the 
professional quality and distinction of the Medical School. As 
with our other campuses, there is no conflict in the goal of a 
public university to take every opportunity to expand access in its 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

aim to be second to none in academic quality." Chairman Troy 
reported the recommendation of the Committee on Faculty and Educa- 
tional Policy that the Board adopt the statement prepared by 
President Wood subsequent to the November 20 meeting of the Commit- 
tee, relative to procedures and practices of faculty recruitment 
and student admissions at UM/Worcester . Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt the statement of President Wood as a 

statement of the Board of Trustees, and that the 
Board of Trustees endorse and support the 
Medical School's proposed policy of academic 
programs for qualified but underprepared students 
and its target of a minimum of 10 percent 
minority students for the fall 1974. 

Chairman Troy then turned to the Committee's considera- 
tion of a proposal endorsed by Chancellor Golino for the establish- 
ment of a Master's Degree Program in History at UM/Boston. 
Consideration by the Committee had resulted in recommendation for 
favorable action by the Trustees. Upon motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve the adoption 
of a Master of Arts Program in History, Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Boston, as contained 
in Document T74-048. 

Subsequent to the vote, President Wood commented that 
the action taken in the case of this degree program underscored 
further the need for long-range planning in graduate education, a 
process now under way. Trustee Carlson questioned whether the 
action had been handled appropriately to give the Board of Trustees 
more time to consider such an action, and to have had the action 
considered in the Long-Range Planning Committee as well as in the 
Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. President Wood com- 
mented that the final approval of such a new program still must 
be sought before the Board of Higher Education, and that there was 
therefore still time for it to be given further review by the Long- 
Range Planning Committee. Chairman Healey observed that Trustee 
Carlson's statement accented the need for all parties to such 
decisions to work together, both at the staff level and at the 
Trustee Committee level. 

Chairman Healey then called upon Trustee Knowles to 
report as Chairman of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds; 
Chairman Knowles asked that Trustee Crowley, who had served as 
Acting Chairman at the most recent meeting of the Committee, report 
in her place. Trustee Crowley summarized the meeting of the 
Committee, November 26, 1973, at which progress at the three 
campuses had been considered. In particular, Trustee Crowley said,

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the meeting of the Committee had sought to review the planning and 
development of the Teaching Hospital at UM/Worcester , in order to 
gain background that would be helpful in preparation for the day- 
long informal session of the Trustees to be held at the Worcester 
campus on January 8, 1974. To this end, the November 26 meeting 
was attended by six persons from the Medical School in addition to 
Dean Soutter, and by representatives of Campbell, Aldrich and 
Nulty; Ellerbe Associates, Incorporated; and Ritchie Associates, 
Incorporated. 

Trustee Crowley summarized briefly some of the presenta- 
tions that had been made to the Committee on November 26 in connec- 
tion with the Teaching Hospital's capacity for expansion and 
flexibility, the arrangement of its hospital services, the critical 
transportation facilities to be provided in it, and other matters. 
In summary, Trustee Crowley said, the Committee learned that there 
had been an on-going program of the evaluation of hospital design 
shared in by the faculty, the architects, and the Dean, and that 
there were plans showing improvement over the original 1967 designs 
that would be available for the January 8 meeting of the Board. 

Trustee Crowley then said that the Committee recommended 
favorable action on four votes, three of which concerned the 
Medical School. 

The first of these recommendations dealt with the design 
of the large interior courtyard at UM/Worcester , including provi- 
sions for planting and other relief from concrete. Trustee Knowles 
observed that the proposal called for better design than had been 
the case in the original plan. Trustee Robertson asked whether 
the new courtyard design would result in reduced costs, and Vice 
President Robinson indicated hope that this would be the case. 
President Wood indicated that, in response to Trustee Robertson, 
Trustees would receive a later report on costs involved in the 
new design. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To accept the recommendation of Dean Soutter of 
a revised design for the large interior court- 
yard between the Basic and Clinical Science 
Building and the Teaching Hospital as prepared 
by Campbell, Aldrich and Nulty and presented 
to the Buildings and Grounds Committee on 
November 26, 1973. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To request that the Bureau of Building Construc- 
tion award the contract for loose furnishings 
and graphics in the Teaching Hospital to a firm 
with the highest possible qualifications in the 
field of interior design, and to include in that 
contract furnishings for the Meditation Room. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Crowley then turned to the Committee's recommenda- 
tion for the rental for the facility known as the Shaw Building at 
the Medical School to the American National Red Cross and to the 
City of Worcester. In response to a question from Chairman Healey, 
Treasurer Johnson reported that the rental agreement with the 
American National Red Cross called for a portion of the Shaw 
Building to be rented for a fee of $40,164 per year plus a 5 per- 
cent annual escalation, and for another portion of the building to 
be rented to the City of Worcester for a fee of $63,393 per year 
plus a 5 percent escalation. The rental agreements with these two 
parties, according to Treasurer Johnson, would call for the Univer- 
sity to provide custodial care and heating, but Treasurer Johnson 
said that the heating commitment was still under negotiation becaus^ 
of the current critical energy crisis. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees authorize the 
Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. 
Johnson, to sign lease agreements with the 
American National Red Cross and the City of 
Worcester for the use of the City Department 
of Public Health for the rental of the Medical 
School building in Worcester known as the Shaw 
Building after concluding negotiations on 
heating costs, upon terms and rental rates as 
presented to this meeting. 

Trustee Crowley then brought to the attention of the 
Board the Committee's recommendation for approval of proposed 
UM/Boston motor vehicle rules, regulations, and traffic signs as 
revised by Counsel of the University and presented in Document 
T74-045A. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve the rules 

and regulations pertaining to the use of motor 
vehicles on the Boston Campus of the University 
of Massachusetts, the interior and exterior 
signs, and the location of the toll booths as 
detailed in Document T74-045A and attached 
drawings . 

In connection x^ith the Vote, Counsel Sear son indicated his expecta- 
tion that there would be a later amendment required providing for 
evaluation for the rules and regulations established. 

Subsequent to this vote, Trustee Abrams asked whether 
there was provision for family practice clinics in the Teaching 
Hospital. Dean Soutter replied that there should be such facili- 
ties in the Hospital ultimately, but the primary clinical sites 
would be in community locations, and that Worcester City Hospital 
was very interested in this connection. Trustee Abrams expressed

the view that clinical facilities should be in the Hospital itself 
but suggested that this question might be more suitable for full 
discussion in the informal sessions of the Board of Trustees at 
the Medical School on January 8. 

Chairman Healey then asked Trustee Rowland to report for 
the Committee on Long-Range Planning. Chairman Rowland said that 
the opening discussion of the Committee's meeting on November 19, 
1973, concerned planning for the Fine Arts program of the Univer- 
sity. She observed that the University's new facilities at the 
Amherst campus and the plans for the Boston campus represent a 
considerable investment and an unusual opportunity for the Univer- 
sity to serve a broader community. Chairman Rowland commented that 
the Fine Arts Center at Amherst, now nearing completion, can be a 
resource for the entire University, the Five Colleges, the Common- 
wealth, and all of New England. 

Chairman Rowland reported discussion in the Committee 
on the possibility of Trustee establishment of an Advisory Council 
on the Fine Arts. She said that such a Council could serve to 
bring the University together with those professionally involved 
in the arts from other areas as well as from within the Common- 
wealth, and could be linked as well to planning for the inaugural 
season of the UM/ Amherst Fine Arts Center. 

Chairman Rowland said that the Committee will bring befor£ 
the Board a more formal proposal for such a Council after there has 
been an opportunity to discuss the matter with the campuses and to 
develop the idea further. She invited Trustees to bring their 
reactions on this matter or their suggestions for participants on 
the Council to her, or to another member of the Committee, or to 
Vice President Robinson. 

Chairman Rowland noted that Trustee Robertson is now a 
member of the Committee on Long-Range Planning and said that the 
Committee looks forward to working with him. Chairman Rowland 
further said that she was pleased to hear Professor Shapiro, on 
the special occasion of his acceptance of the University Medal, 
refer to the work of the Long-Range Planning Committee and to the 
need for increasing and sustaining attention to goals and missions 
of the University. She noted that, in its meeting on November 19, 
the Committee began what she hoped would be a continuing and wide- 
ranging discussion of this subject. She anticipated that the 
University's purposes will be a current agenda item for the Commit- 
tee this year, and indicated that the Committee will stay in close 
touch with the Board as discussions proceed. 

Chairman Healey next asked Trustee Shaler to report for 
the Committee on Student Affairs. Chairman Shaler began by 
expressing his awareness that certain subjects coming before the 
Committee on Student Affairs would overlap with those of concern 
to other Committees, such as that on Faculty and Educational Policy 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

He said that the Committee on Student Affairs, while considering 
all matters relevant to its assigned area, would defer taking actioiji 
on specific questions where it was determined they would more 
appropriately be acted upon by another Committee. 

Chairman Shaler then summarized the discussions that took 
place at the meeting of the Committee on Student Affairs on 
November 15, 1973. He reported that Vice Chancellor Gage had 
reviewed the status of the University Alcoholic Beverage Policy, 
which is presently before student organizations at UM/ Amherst and 
scheduled to be submitted to the Board of Trustees in February. 
Chairman Shaler reported that Mr. Dent, of the UM/ Amherst Financial 
Aid Office, had introduced the Committee to a very comprehensive 
student survey made in Oregon state colleges and universities, 
suggesting that such a survey approach could provide extensive 
information on financial needs of Massachusetts students and a 
valuable documentation for State funds for scholarships. Mr. Dent 
plans to adapt the survey method to the UM/ Amherst student body, 
producing a report which may be available in June 1974. Chairman 
Shaler reported that Mr. Costello of the Boston campus described 
the admissions picture there and had indicated the questions 
UM/Boston must consider in achieving a representative student body. 
These include geography, minority groups, transfer students, com- 
munity college students, and other factors. Chairman Shaler 
reported briefly on information being developed in connection with 
admissions to the Medical School and at UM/ Amherst, commenting that 
further data on these matters will be received by the Committee in 
future meetings. 

Chairman Healey then asked for a vote on Personnel 
Actions (Doc. T74-049) and the classification of position titles 
(Doc. T74-049) . On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the personnel actions 
as detailed in Doc. T74-049. 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject 
to the policies and procedures now in effect 
as subsequently amended, revised, added to 
or repealed by the Board of Trustees with 
respect to professional personnel under the 
provisions of Chapter 75 of the General Laws 
as amended by Chapter 648, 1962. The 
classification, salary range and descriptive 
job specification for each position to which 
a member of the professional staff is 
hereby appointed, promoted, transferred, or 
determined shall be as hereafter determined 
by the Board of Trustees or under their 
authority.

VOTED : To authorize the Chairman of the Board of 
Trustees to appoint a Nominating Committee 
of Trustees to report to the Annual Meeting 
of the Board, February 1974. 

As a final item of other business, Trustee Shaler was 
recognized, and called attention to the successful record of the 
1973 UM/ Amherst Cross-Country Team which, in the current season, 
placed first in the Yankee Conference and in New England, placed 
third in the IC4A competition, and placed 15th in the National 
Competitions in Spokane, Washington. Upon motion made and seconded 
it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees formally commend 
the 1973 UM/ Amherst Cross-Country Team and 
its coach, Ken O'Brien, for its success this 
season. 

Upon this happy note, and with no further business to 
come before the Board of Trustees, the meeting was adjourned at

RESOLVED: That the following be conveyed to the family of 
the late Eli Goldston, and entered into the 
permanent minutes of this meeting. 

The Board of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts expresses its deep sorrow and sense 
of loss upon the death of Eli Goldston, a member 
of the Trustee Council of the University. 

As attorney, industrialist, lecturer, and 
citizen, he combined a high degree of technical 
skill with a sense of the good inherent in man 
that made the many organizations and institutions 
he served more humanly responsive to the needs of 
the times. Our sadness at his sudden and untimely 
death as he was on the threshold of a new career 
is shared by so many beyond this University. 

President Wood then asked for reports from the Amherst 
and Boston campuses. Reporting for UM/ Amherst, Chancellor Bromery 
commented on further fuel consumption savings recently realized; 
and on the awarding of an initial grant of $252,000 to UM/ Amherst 
by the National Science Foundation for construction of a millimeter 
wave radio telescope to be built at the Five College Radio 
Astronomy Observatory. 

Chancellor Golino, reporting for UM/Boston, stated that 
the scheduled opening of the Columbia Point campus on January 28 
had been smoothly accomplished, and noted his appreciation for the 
early and continued support of people on the state level and at 
UM/Boston. 

President Wood proposed that the comments of the Dean, 
UM/Worcester, be considered as part of the report of the Executive 
Committee and accordingly, with the consent of the Chairman, 
addressed proposed Administrative Actions at UM/Worcester (Doc. T74- 
059 and T74-060) . President Wood prefaced his recommendations by 
noting that three concurrent developments — an improving management 
information capability; considerations of senior executive compensa- 
tion levels at the University; and the embarking of the Worcester 
campus upon a. new phase in its development with the coming on line 
of the new Medical Science Building and the Teaching Hospital, 
thereby moving the Medical School into full campus status — require 
that an appropriate realignment of responsibilities, together with 
changes of administrative title and compensation, now take place. 
The President stated that, in consultation with Dean Soutter, he 
had already taken a first step in moving to institute a Visiting 
Committee of distinguished outside medical and health experts to 
advise the administration and the Board on progress and future 
development at UM/Worcester .

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood then offered three Votes to reflect these 
new directions and effect their implementation: 

VOTED : That, effective immediately, the title and 
compensation of Dean Soutter be and hereby 
are changed, as specified in Document T74- 
059, which Document is attached hereto and 
made a part of this Vote. 

The President described this proposed Vote as identifying 
the Dean as Chancellor, University of Massachusetts at Worcester, 
and Dean of the Medical School, University of Massachusetts, 
effective from the present date until the date of his scheduled 
retirement, June 30, 1976. 

The second Vote was presented by the President as follows: 

VOTED : That there be and is hereby established the 
position of Chancellor, University of Massa- 
chusetts at Worcester, effective July 1, 1976, 
as specified in Document T74-060, which 
document is attached hereto and made a part of 
this vote. The Chancellor of the University 
of Massachusetts at Worcester shall have all 
the powers, privileges, and authority reserved 
to Campus Chancellors as specified in Part II C 
of the Board of Trustees Statement on Univer- 
sity Governance (Doc. T73-098) , as may be 
amended from time to time.

The third Vote, the President stated, takes into account 
the process of transition between the period before the Dean's 
retirement and the filling of the post of Chancellor, and was 
offered as follows: 



VOTED : That, in view of the pending retirement of 

Chancellor /Dean Soutter on June 30, 1976, the 
Board of Trustees, pursuant to the provisions 
of Part II A(4) of the Trustee Statement on 
University Governance (Doc. T73-098) , requests 
the President of the University to initiate 
consultations with Chancellor/Dean Soutter, the 
Executive Committee of the Faculty of the Medical 
School, and such other individuals and components 
of the University as the President may deem appro- 
priate and prepare recommendations for the charge 
to and the composition of a search committee for 
the appointment of a Chancellor of the University 
of Massachusetts at Worcester, effective July 1, 
1976, said recommendations to be submitted to the 
Executive Committee at its meeting in March, 1974.

Chairman Healey stated that the proposed actions would 
appropriately "mark a milestone in the history of the Medical 
School," recognize the service of Dr. Soutter in developing the 
Medical School, ensure the continuation of his leadership in com- 
pleting the Hospital, and begin the process of transition in 
selecting the person who will ultimately direct the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester. Accordingly, he stated, they have the 
full support of the Executive Committee. 

Upon motion made and seconded, the Board enacted the 
three Votes as offered by President Wood. 

Dr. Soutter acknowledged the actions, as did Dr. Clark, on 
behalf of the faculty at UM/Worcester. 

Addressing the Classifications and Personnel Actions for

VOTED : To confirm the Classification of Position Titles, 
UM/ Amherst, UM/Boston, and UM/Worcester , as con- 
tained in Documents T74-064 and T74-065; and the 
Personnel Actions, UM/ Amherst, UM/Boston, and 
UM/Worcester, as contained in Document T74-066. 

and 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to 
the policies and procedures now in effect as 
subsequently amended, revised, added to, or 
repealed by the Board of Trustees with respect 
to professional personnel under provisions of

Chapter 648, 1962. The classification, salary 
range, and descriptive job specification for each 
position to which a member of the professional 
staff is hereby appointed, promoted, transferred, 
or determined shall be as hereafter determined 
by the Board of Trustees or under their authority. 

Trustee Troy, reporting for the Committee on Faculty and

Page as the Robert M. Maclver Professor of Sociology, UM/Amherst 
(Doc. T74-057) , and it was moved, seconded and

it approved the summer lease for the Playhouse-on-the-Wharf . The 
educational and financial success of the summer experience was

asked to approve a similar lease for the 1974 summer season. 

Trustee Troy discussed the Report on Academic Programs in 
Residence Areas, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-051) that had been requested 
by his Committee. The rationale and evaluation, as well as the 
strengths and weaknesses of the program were presented; and Trustee 
Troy concluded by emphasizing that, "if the residential colleges 
are to be continued and possibly expanded, they need above all else 
not only gifted but steady and continuing leadership in top 
positions — particularly that of Master." 

The summary presentation of the January 1974 Graduation

The report of the Committee on Long-Range Planning was 
given by Trustee Rowland. In discussing a proposed Trustee Advisory 
Council on the Fine Arts, she stated that it would consist of at 
least ten persons chosen from within and outside Massachusetts and 
three faculty members from the University, and would advise on: 
(1) strengthening the University's educational program in the fine 
arts, (2) linking University capabilities with public needs to 
enhance the creative arts and art education in the state, (3) 
strengthening interaction among the arts departments and activities 
on each campus, and between the two undergraduate campuses ,and (4) th|e 
development of appropriate activities to inaugurate the Fine Arts 
Center at the Amherst campus. Accordingly, it was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To establish a Trustee Advisory Council on the 
Fine Arts, with appointments to be made by the 
President following appropriate consultation. 

Enrollment planning will be the Committee's principal 
agenda item for the remainder of the year, and will include con- 
sideration of the ultimate size and rate of growth of the Boston 
campus; and the planning implications of an increased number of 
part-time and older students, a changing mix between undergraduate 
and graduate programs, and the new Commonwealth Transfer Compact.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

RESOLVED: That the following be conveyed to the family of 
the late Walter F. Rutter, and entered into the 
permanent minutes of this meeting: 

The Board of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts expresses its deep sorrow and 
sense of loss upon the death of Walter F. Rutter, 
'17, a founding member of the Alumni Building 
Association, and a graduate of the University. 

Through his leadership in organizing that 
Association, the University was able to provide 
in timely fashion in the 1940' s self-liquidating 
dormitory residences for its growing student 
body. His foresight made college attendance 
possible for many men and women now ably serving 
the Commonwealth. We are saddened at his death 
but know his memory lives on in the University 
he so loyally served. 

President Wood then noted that he and the Chancellors 
would appear before the House Committee on Ways and Means on 
March 11 to speak for full restoration of the budget of the Univer- 
sity for the next fiscal year. In connection with business to come 
before the present meeting, President Wood observed that action on 
the Commonwealth Transfer Compact provided an excellent example of 
mutual planning and cooperation among institutions of higher educa- 
tion in the public sector. He expressed appreciation to all of 
those in the three segments of Massachusetts public institutions — 
the University, the state colleges, and the community colleges — who 
had helped bring the Compact to completion. 

Chancellor Bromery reported that UM/ Amherst faculty 
member Paul Carter Harrison's drama, currently showing off-Broadway 
in New York at the St. Mark's Playhouse, had received excellent 
reviews in the New York Times and elsewhere. He further noted that 
the UM/ Amherst basketball team is among the first four picked for 
participation in the forthcoming NIT tournament. 

Chancellor Golino, reporting for UM/Boston, announced 
that April 27, 1974, had been agreed to by all parties concerned 
as the date for a ceremony officially dedicating the Harbor Campus 
and marking his installation as Chancellor. He informed the Board 
further that he and the Chancellors of five other urban universities 
would meet soon in Chicago, to discuss the possibility of reactivat- 
ing the notion of federal support of "Urban Grant Universities," 
analogous to earlier government support of land-grant colleges and 
universities. 

Chancellor Soutter said that he was distressed by 
Secretary Cronin's view that the 1974 entering class at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts Medical School should be reduced from 64 to 
16 students. He emphasized that the Medical School had been createc. 
in 1962 by legislative action to meet public need, and that the 



3793 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Legislature has repeatedly extended its support to development of 
the Medical School for two principal reasons. One, he said, was 
the Legislature's desire to guarantee opportunity for qualified 
Massachusetts residents to receive medical education within the 
Commonwealth. Chancellor Soutter observed that private medical 
schools in Massachusetts have enrollments of which only approxi- 
mately 25 percent are from this state; he said that currently the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School has more than 1,000 
Massachusetts applicants for next year 's class, two-thirds of whom 
appear to be well-qualified for entrance. The second principal 
reason for Legislative support for the Medical School, he said, was 
its desire to enable the preparation of practicing physicians who 
are likely to remain in Massachusetts after completion of their 
medical education. 

Chancellor Soutter commented that the argument for 
drastically limiting Medical School enrollment now because of a 
possible "surplus" of doctors by 1980 was specious. He questioned 
the meaning of the word "surplus," and said that the sooner there 
is an adequate supply of physicians the better the health needs of 
the Commonwealth will be served. Chancellor Soutter stressed that 
the problem of supply of physicians is not simply one of adequate 
numbers in the Commonwealth, but their distribution geographically 
across the state and by specializations. He said that the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts Medical School is especially cognizant of 
its responsibility to the people of the Commonwealth in terms of 
a more adequate supply of practicing physicians more adequately 
distributed over the state and providing more adequate accessibilit} 
to the range of specializations for which patients have need. He 
spoke in this connection about the strong emphasis at the Medical 
School, both in pre-degree and post-doctoral training, on prepara- 
tion for family practice. Chancellor Soutter concluded by saying 
that the Teaching Hospital, voted by the Trustees nine years ago, 
is an integral necessity for adequate medical education in Worcestei}, 
and for provision of referral service which otherwise does not 
exist in Massachusetts outside of Boston. 

Trustee Abrams said that he, as a practicing pediatrician, 
was in strong agreement with the remarks of Chancellor Soutter. 
He noted that Massachusetts is below the national average in pro- 
vision of family physicians, that the need for medical educational 
opportunity for Massachusetts students is real, and that the 
Medical School's emphasis on pre-degree as well as post-doctoral 
education in family practice should be commended. Trustee Croce, 
as a practicing physician, also expressed himself as being in 
strong agreement with the statement made by Chancellor Soutter. 

Chairman Healey, reporting for the Executive Committee, 
reviewed the Committee's consideration of Proposed Rules and 
Regulations for the Classification of Students for Tuition 
Purposes , (Doc. T74-037A) — adjustments necessitated in order to

make the University's rules and regulations in this connection con- 
sistent with judicial decisions and legislation now in being. He 
noted several amendments of the rules and regulations contained in 
Trustee Document T74-073 suggested by Counsel since the Committee's 
meeting February 20, 1974. These are reflected in Trustee Document 
T74-073A, attached to these minutes. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the rules and regulations for the classi- 
fication of students for tuition purposes as 
set forth in Trustee Document T74-073A, be 
adopted, effective January 1, 1974, and that 
all other rules and regulations pertaining to 
the classification of students for tuition 
purposes be rescinded as of January 1, 1974; 
and to further recommend that students be 
allowed to file applications for a change in 
tuition classification for the Spring Semester 
of 1974 until April 15, 1974. 

Trustee Gordon, as he had at the Executive Committee 
meeting of February 20, spoke of the exemplary behavior of Coach 
Jack Leaman and the UM/Amherst basketball team under very unfavor- 
able crowd conditions at a recent Syracuse University game. He 
recommended, with agreement by Chairman Healey and the Trustees, 
that the Secretary should convey by letter to Coach Leaman by 
Saturday, March 9, the Trustees' strong commendation. 

Trustee Troy, reporting for the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, reviewed the development of the Commonwealth 
Transfer Compact (Doc. T74-011B) , a formal agreement among the 
segments of public higher education in the state permitting a 
graduate of a community college who has a degree as Associate in 
Arts or in Science to transfer his academic credit as a unit to one 
of the four-year institutions if he meets the normal admissions 
criteria of that institution. He described consideration of the 
Compact at Amherst and Boston and in the Committee, and reported 
the Committee's recommendation for adoption of the Compact. It 
was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To adopt and ratify the Commonwealth Transfer 
Compact as set forth in Document T74-011B. 

Trustee Troy noted the need for firmer guidelines on 
determination of residency status for admission to the Medical 
School, and said that these would be developed by the Office of 
the President, followed by faculty review at the Medical School 
and action by the Board of Trustees. 

Trustee Troy spoke then to the proposed Offer of Employ- 
ment with Tenure to Professor Emmon W. Bach, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74- 
071) , noting that Professor Bach would teach half-time in the 



3795 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Department of Linguistics at the University and half-time at 
Hampshire College, with salary divided between the two institutions. 
He commented that this arrangement is an important example of 
cooperation in Five Colleges, Incorporated. It was moved, seconded, 
and 

VOTED : To concur with the proposed appointment of 

Emmon W. Bach as Professor of Linguistics with 
tenure, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 
effective September 1, 1974. 

Trustee Troy noted the increasing effort to conduct 
faculty personnel planning in ways responsive to the November 1972 
tenure policy statement of the Board. He summarized the Progress 
Report on Personnel Planning, UM/ Amherst (Doc. T74-070) which had 
been presented to the Committee, and also referred to an analogous 
report for UM/Boston. 

Trustee Cagle said that, in connection with faculty 
personnel planning, he was disturbed that the narrowing possibil- 
ities of future hiring at Amherst might have a negative effect on 
Affirmative Action. Trustee Troy responded that the Committee 
urged the Trustees and administration to maintain a full commitment 
to the Affirmative Action Program within the constraints of such 
planning. 

Without requesting Trustee action, Trustee Troy described 
briefly the Program of Summer Study in Japan, UM/ Amherst (Doc. T74- 
072), which involves no departures from existing policy regarding 
study abroad, but should be a valuable extension of opportunities 
for University students. 

Trustee Troy presented a recommendation for An Offer of 
Employment with Tenure to Professor Harold S. Stone, UM/ Amherst 
(Doc. T74-074) , and it was accordingly moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To concur with the proposed appointment of 
Harold S. Stone as Professor of Electrical 
and Computer Engineering with tenure, 
University of Massachusetts, effective 
September 1, 1974. 

In the absence of Trustee Rowland, Trustee Carlson 
reported for the Committee on Long-Range Planning, in which discus- 
sion of enrollment planning will be the continuing agenda for the 
next several months. The Committee will be concerned not only with 
overall enrollment goals, but with alternatives for student mix 
and enrollment growth rate. In connection with future growth and 
programs of UM/Boston, the Committee is agreed that the Trustees 
should establish enrollment parameters within which campus recom- 
mendations can be considered. Trustee Carlson stressed the need 
for involvement of the Board before campus proposals and decisions

become firmly established, and said the Committee had asked the 
President's Office to prepare a report on enrollment alternatives 
for UM/Boston, to be reviewed at the Committee's next meeting. 

Chairman Healey commented that full interchange between 
the Long-Range Planning Committee and other Standing Committees 
of the Board also is needed, saying that the role of the Long- 
Range Planning Committee will be strengthened by such communication 
with the Committees responsible for oversight of operations. 

Trustee Gordon, delegate to the Board of Higher Education, 
said that the University seeks active cooperation with the Board 
of Higher Education and the other segments of the public sector. 
To increase communication between the University Trustees and the 
Board of Higher Education, he had suggested that the latter body 
send a representative to the University's Board meetings. Mr. Lee 
Sandwen now serves in this capacity. At the same time, Trustee 
Gordon expressed concern about the nature of communications 
directed from the Board of Higher Education to the University in 
the preceding month, saying that he was disturbed by their tone 
and timing. 

There being no further business to come before the Board 
of Trustees, the meeting was adjourned at 2:50 p.m.

informally approved by the full Board at its luncheon meeting. He 
expressed his appreciation to the Board for adopting the statement, 
and asked that it be appended to the Minutes of this meeting. 
(See appended "Statement by the Board of Trustees of the University 
of Massachusetts on Meeting the Needs for Veterinary Medicine 
Education in New England") . 

Chancellor Bromery then reported for UM/Amherst, and 
stated that Dr. Mortimer H. Appley, Dean of the Graduate School, 
has been appointed President of Clark University in Worcester. The 
Chancellor remarked on Dean Appley 's service as a teacher and 
scholar while at UM/Amherst, including his Chairmanship of the 
Department of Psychology during its period of greatest growth. 

Chancellor Bromery then read a prepared statement, which 
was distributed to the Trustees and the press, in which he outlined 
the anticipated impact on UM/Amherst of the Governor's proposed 
6.5 percent budget cut, and asked on behalf of the students and 
faculty that the Trustees request that institutions of higher educa- 
tion be exempted from the proposed cuts. President Wood commented 
that with the Chairman's concurrence, he had joined with the presi- 
dents of other public institutions in requesting restoration of the 
proposed budget reductions, and that he would testify in favor of 
restoration before the Senate Committee on Ways and Means on 
April 8. 

Chancellor Golino reported for UM/Boston by stating that 
the alumni of that campus had, for the first time, undertaken a 
telephone canvassing campaign to raise scholarship funds, and 
expressed his appreciation to the alumni for their successful 
efforts. 

Reporting for UM/Worcester , Chancellor Soutter stated 
that the Medical School, too, would be hurt by the proposed budget 
cuts. He stated that thus far only 40 new students have been 
admitted for the 1974 fall semester, instead of the 64 students that 
could be admitted given the funding requested by the Trustees. 

Chairman Healey next reported for the Executive Committee, 
and introduced the Trustee Policy Statement Relative to Alcoholic 
Beverages (Doc. T74-080) , and the Rules and Regulations Relative to 
Alcoholic Beverages — UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-081A) . He stated that 
these proposed documents have been developed and reviewed over a 
number of months, that the UM/Amherst rules and regulations have 
been endorsed by the appropriate campus constituencies, and that he 
and the Executive Committee anticipated that they would prove to 
be a helpful and useful set of rules and regulations governing the 
possession, use and sale of alcoholic beverages at the Amherst 
campus. Following brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To repeal the present alcoholic beverage policy 
as set forth in Trustee Document T.TO-034 and 
adopt in its place the proposed Trustee Policy

and is attached hereto and made a part of 
this vote. 

Trustee Sullivan, speaking as the Chairman of the Board 
of Selectmen and of the Licensing Commission of the Town of Amherst 
endorsed the Trustee action as helpful to the licensing procedures 
of the Town. 

Chairman Healey next presented a proposed Amendment to 
the Trustee Vote of March 6, 1974, Relative to the Classification 
of Students for Tuition Purposes , explaining that an extension of 
the time for student filing of applications for classification is 
needed. It was accordingly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the time for filing applications for change 

in tuition classification for the Spring Semester, 
1974 under the rules and regulations for the 
Classification of students for tuition purposes 
(Trustee Document T74-073A, adopted March 6, 1974, 
effective January 1, 1974), be extended from 
April 15, 1974, to and including May 15, 1974. 

Trustee Pumphret reported for the Committee on Finance, 
having acted as Chairman of the March meeting of the Committee in 
the absence of its regular Chairman. He reported that the Commit- 
tee had accepted the recommendations of the investment counsel, 
and had approved the purchase and sale of securities as outlined 
in Document T74-082. He further reported that the Committee had 
discussed the employment of an insurance consultant (Doc. T74- 
076), and had agreed to take this step and request advice on the 
basis of specific insurance needs and priorities, which are to be 
determined by the Committee in consultation with the Treasurer of 
the University. 

Trustee Pumphret further reported that the Committee had 
discussed in considerable depth the Designation of the Use of 
Income from the Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln Endowment Fund , and

had determined that comprehensive guidelines and criteria for the 
use of these endowment fund income monies should be developed and 
then reviewed and acted upon by the Board of Trustees. In the 
interim, he stated, the Committee had voted to recommend to the 
Board that a portion of the income be loaned to the Campus Center 
Trust Fund to help meet debt service for the Campus Center and 
parking garage. 

Trustee Robertson inquired about the nature and antici- 
pated duration of the debt. Trustee Pumphret briefly explained how 
the debt had come into being, and stated that there has been a 
realistic approach by the students in reviewing the assessment of 
student fees for the Center. Trustee Robertson further inquired 
whether the two projects were now on a self-sustaining basis, and 
Chancellor Bromery replied that the parking garage is the greater 
problem, but that he anticipated it will be self-sustaining within 
three years. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. 
Johnson, upon the request of the President of 
the University, be authorized to loan an amount 
not to exceed $50,000 from accumulated income of 
the Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln Fund to the 
Campus Center Trust Fund for the purpose of 
assisting in meeting debt service. 

Proposed actions concerning the Bookshop Operation — UM / 
Boston were then addressed by Trustee Pumphret, who reported that 
Vice Chancellor Hamilton had requested permission to operate the 
Bookshop on a concession basis. He stated that an earlier loan of 
inventory and materials from the Bookstore at UM/Amherst which had 
been used to begin operation of the Bookshop had proved burdensome 
to repay, and that based on experiences at other institutions, it 
was anticipated that operation of the Bookshop on a concession 
basis would accelerate repayment of the loan. It was then moved, 
seconded and 



VOTED : That the Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. Johnson, 
and the Vice Chancellor for Administration and 
Finance, William R. Hamilton, Jr., be hereby 
authorized to enter into a contract with the 
successful bidder for the University Bookstore 
Operation, Harbor Campus, including the sale of 
inventory of the Boston Bookshop Trust Fund 
Account, in accordance with the terms and condi- 
tions in the bid specifications on file in the 
Treasurer's Office.

shall be used to pay off all accrued debts and 
for the other continuing purposes of the Boston 
Bookshop Trust Fund. 



That the Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. 
Johnson, be authorized to transfer $108,500 from 
the Trust Fund Interest Account to the Trustee 
Trust Fund Interest Reserve Account. 



That the sum of $108,500 owed by the Boston 
Bookshop to the Amherst Bookstore on account of 
the inventory of books and supplies advanced to 
start the Boston Bookshop be assumed by the 
Trustee Trust Fund Interest Reserve Account with 
the provision that the Trustee Trust Fund Interest 
Reserve Account will be reimbursed over a 
period of six (6) years by the Boston Bookshop 
Trust Fund. 



Trustee Pumphret next addressed a proposed authorization 
to solicit bids to establish a Harbor Campus Branch Bank, . UM/Boston 
(Doc. T74-079). He reported that a clear case had been made for the 
need to provide a banking facility at the new campus, and that the 
Finance Committee had agreed to recommend authorization for the 
solicitation of bids with the understanding that such a facility 
would have to be open to the public. Chairman Healey clarified 
that the branch bank would have to be open for receipts and dis- 
bursements to individuals outside the campus community, and stated 
that the specifications should reflect this requirement. Chairman 
Healey further clarified that the specifications are to be reviewed 
and approved by the Finance Committee, with competitive bidding to 
follow. It was then moved, seconded and 



VOTED : That the Chancellor at UM/Boston, or his 

designee, be authorized to invite bids for 
selection of a commercial bank to maintain 
a branch at the Harbor Campus based on 
specifications approved by the Treasurer and 
the President with the provision that the 
bids be presented to the Trustee Finance 
Committee for approval and award.

Report of 
Student Affairs 
Committee 



Discussion of 
University-wide 
Information Needs 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood reported that a meeting of the Budget 
Committee had been held on March 20, but that no actions had been 
taken. 

Trustee Shaler, reporting for the Committee on Student 
Affairs, stated that the Committee had heard a report on University- 
wide information needs on student characteristics, and that the 
report had noted the anticipated usefulness of a management informa- 
tion system in helping to identify the determinants of academic 
performance, that only group data would be used in any reports, and 
that the need for confidentiality must be respected. 

President Wood remarked that the University is in the 
early stages of establishing an information system that will permit 
the linking of student flow and demands to programs, budgets, and 
departmental and tenure planning. He added that the issue of con- 
fidentiality is one that warrants particular care and attention in 
any computer-related activity. 

Trustee Troy asked whether there were any cost estimates 
available for this activity, and Vice President Robinson replied 
that initially the work would be accomplished through the reassign- 
ment of currently employed personnel. 

Trustee Apostola expressed concern about the process of 
gathering information on students, perhaps leading to a diminution 
of personal freedom in that individuals are then perceived prin- 
cipally as members of groups or categories, and certain types of 
academic and other behavior are then expected of them. President 
Wood endorsed these remarks as a reasonable and legitimate concern, 
but explained that central to any management information system 
activity is the need to "distinguish between probabilities that 
emerge out of classes of events or individuals, and the individual 
cases themselves," and that there is neither the intent in this 
instance, nor any benefit to be derived, in attempting to reach 
conclusions about individuals from general categories of information 

Trustee Croce inquired about the use of such information 
beyond the University; and Vice President Robinson replied that' some 
of the group data will be requested by state and federal agencies, 
and there is a danger that as a management information system capa- 
bility is developed, more requests for information are likely to be 
forthcoming which must be dealt with in some way. Chairman Healey 
summarized the sense of the discussion that "the computer must be 
the servant and not the master." 

At the request of the Chairman, Trustee Gordon reported 
as the delegate to the Board of Higher Education. He related Board 
discussion and action concerning a number of issues including 
capital outlay requests, and noted the contribution of President 
Wood in effecting an upward revision of those requests.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At Chairman Healey's request, President Wood reported 
briefly on the progress of the University since the last prior 
meeting. He spoke particularly of cooperative developments between 
the public and private sectors of higher education in which the 
University has played a part, and noted that the Governor, speaking 
at the Harbor Campus Dedication on April 27, had made proposals 
which were in the interest of both sectors. President Wood recom- 
mended Board support of the Governor's proposals; it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees endorse the Governor's 
proposed Educational Opportunity Program and his 
proposed Loan Program, which would jointly increase 
student access and choice regarding higher educa- 
tion in Massachusetts; provided, that the Trustees 
support University participation in the drafting of 
the scholarship legislation which the Governor 
proposed to introduce; that the Trustees support 
maintenance and appropriate increase of the existing 
state appropriations for financial aid received 
by the University from the Commonwealth; and that 
students in public higher education receive a fair 
share of the funds under the new Educational 
Opportunity Program. 

Chancellor Bromery at the President's request then 
reported for UM/ Amherst. He spoke briefly of his pleasure at 
having Trustee Savini join the Board, representing students of his 
campus, and reported that the UM/Amherst debate team had been 
chosen as one of four New England teams to participate in the 1974 
National Inter-Collegiate Debate Tournament. Chancellor Bromery 
then read a statement describing steps being taken further to define 
the future mission of the Amherst campus. He said that many 
elements of the campus would be involved in the process of answering 
for UM/Amherst questions about the proper nature of higher educa- 
tion, about how best to pursue knowledge and scholarship, to main- 
tain standards of excellence, to motivate students, and to remain 
constant to the ideals of the academy while remaining responsive 
to societal needs. 

President Wood commended Chancellor Bromery 's statement, 
noting that the UM/Amherst process parallels similar efforts by the 
New Directions Committee at UM/Boston and the newly established 
Visting Committee at UM/Worcester . 

Chancellor Golino reported briefly on the April 27 
inauguration of the Harbor Campus and of himself as Chancellor of 
UM/Boston, and reported that an Open House at the Harbor Campus on 
Sunday, April 28 had been attended by between 5,000-7,000 people. 
He said that he had appeared before the Board of Higher Education 
in April to participate with Dean Strange in a progress report on

College III, and noted that the Board had approved three Master of 
Arts programs for UM/Boston, and had approved in principle program 
plans for College IV. 

Chancellor Soutter, reporting for UM/Worcester , noted the 
accreditation of the training program in Family Practice. He said 
that this is the first such program in New England. 

Chairman Healey then turned to reports of the Standing 
Committees, and himself reported for the Executive Committee. He 
commended the work of William Searson as General Counsel of the 
University and, with President Wood, commented on the University's 
need to be assured that any other legal counsel retained be 
approved and supervised by the General Counsel. After discussion, 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That any legal counsel retained by the University 
on a permanent, temporary, or consultant basis 
shall be first approved by, and subject to the 
continuing supervision of, the General Counsel of 
the University, and that all prior votes concern- 
ing hiring of legal counsel be and hereby are 
rescinded. 

For the Budget Committee, Trustee Pumphret presented the 
Teaching Hospital Budget for Fiscal Year 1975. He commended the 
simplicity of its presentation, and noted that the budget is based 
on judgment and assumptions developed after study that included 
consideration of the experience of Pennsylvania State University 
and the University of Arizona with recently started teaching 
hospitals. Trustee Pumphret said, however, that if the document 
were a typical business budget, he would have no hesitancy in stat- 
ing that there is excessive lead-in and start-up expense in it. 
But, he said that as a nonprofessional he was reluctant to make 
such a judgment without a careful review involving specific items, 
and that he hoped the Board could have substantial dialogue about 
these matters with the University's medical personnel so that the 
ultimately adopted budget would guarantee a first-class hospital, 
but one free of unnecesssary expenditures. Trustee Pumphret then 
proceeded through a detailed analysis of the expenditures proposed 
in the Teaching Hospital budget, and raised a number of questions 
about specific items. He questioned particularly an expectation 
stated in the budget that in due time income from services to 
patients would cover the cost of patient care. 

There followed a substantial discussion of the Teaching 
Hospital Budget. Trustee Croce, as a medical professional and a 
member of the Budget Committee, noted that in budgeting where 
patient care is concerned there are likely to be unanticipated 
problems for which it would be negligent to fail to provide 
adequately. He spoke of other variables in medical budgeting, but 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

indicated his support of the present budget, providing that a stric 
mechanism for accountability be set up. Chancellor Soutter 
reviewed the kinds of costs expected in different kinds of on-going 
hospitals, noted that these are high because of complicated ser- 
vices rendered, and observed that this was the case even for an 
institution beyond the start-up phase. Trustee Pumphret asked for 
clarification of the budget support requested for monitoring equip- 
ment, asking whether it involved only the 55 beds indicated or 
whether there would be proposed a monitoring facility for other 
areas. He asked for comparisons between the cost of leasing and 
buying such equipment. Chancellor Soutter replied that monitoring 
will be in the intensive care units of the hospital, and that one 
of the reasons for leasing such equipment is that improvements 
constantly being made can result in purchased equipment becoming 
obsolescent. Chairman Healey questioned Chancellor Soutter on the 
possibility of the hospital becoming self-supporting in terms of 
the costs of providing patient care. When Chancellor Soutter said 
that income was expected at maturity to cover all expenses for 
running the hospital, Chairman Healey pointed out that there was 
no allocation for overhead, administrative costs, or depreciation. 
Chancellor Soutter responded that he was not sanguine about cover- 
ing those kinds of costs through income without going to fees that 
might deter utilization of the hospital. 

Trustee Weldon compared the situation of private and 
public hospitals, asked whether the Teaching Hospital meets the 
requirements of the Department of Public Health, and noted the 
importance of ensuring that Teaching Hospital rate schedules and 
budget making take into consideration impact on other hospitals of 
the area. He said that other hospitals should be informed 
adequately about the Teaching Hospital in order to do their own 
planning for the future. He observed that the voluntary hospital 
and the teaching hospital associated with a public university 
should be partners and should work together. Chancellor Soutter 
reviewed consultation and affiliation with hospitals in the 
Worcester area, and noted communication between the Teaching 
Hospital and the Department of Public Health. Trustee Croce, who 
is also a trustee of the Worcester City Hospital, said that the new 
Teaching Hospital should be an institution for problem patients 
throughout the state and therefore should not be in competition 
with the community hospitals. In this connection, he spoke of the 
need for a clear Teaching Hospital policy concerning the admission 
of patients referred from community hospitals in order to avoid 
undesirable competition and conflict. Trustee Croce added that he 
thought the Trustees should not reassure the people of Massachu- 
setts that the Teaching Hospital would be a completely self- 
liquidating project. 

Trustee Pumphret closed discussion saying that the 
dialogue had helped satisfy his concerns, and that he believed the 
budget should be accepted and approved, if provision could be made 
for exercising continuing review and control of its expenditures

by the President, reporting to the Trustees. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To accept the recommendation of Chancellor 
Soutter, presented by President Wood, of 
the Teaching Hospital Budget for Fiscal 
Year 1975, and to approve as a ceiling 
figure the amount of $3,736,431; provided , 
however, that the President is directed 
to continue to review with the Chancellor 
all personnel and nonpersonnel budget 
requirements of the hospital, especially 
with respect to classified positions, and 
to deposit in a special reserve account the 
sum of $1,000,000 of said budget, pending 
further demonstration of need; funds from 
such account to be released by the President 
after consultation with appropriate legisla- 
tive and executive authority and with the 
concurrence of the Board of Trustees. 

Trustee Troy reported as Chairman of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy, and presented first the results of 
the Committee's review of the Campus Tenure Recommendations, Spring 
1974— UM/Amherst and UM/Boston (Doc. T74-096 and Doc. T74-097) . He 
stated that the Committee had reviewed the procedures followed by 
the campuses in implementing Trustee and administrative policies 
and guidelines governing the award of tenure. Trustee Troy 
expressed the sense of the Committee that measurable progress had 
been made over the past year in systematizing the tenure review and 
evaluation process, and stated the expectation that next year would 
see the formal procedure fully operational. 

Issues and questions which must be addressed prior to 
tenure recommendations being forwarded by the campuses to the 
President's Office and the Board of Trustees next year were dis- 
cussed. (See Minutes of the Meeting of the Committee on Faculty 
and Educational Policy, April 24, 1974, pp. 3 and 4, for a listing 
of these.) Trustee Troy quoted part of a memorandum on this year's 
tenure recommendations from President Wood to the Committee and the 
Board, in which the President stated that "Vice President Lynton 
and I are satisfied that every recommendation for tenure is con- 
sistent with the long-range needs of the campus, even in those few 
instances where the proportion of tenured faculty in a department 
is very high." 

Trustee Troy then recognized Trustee Cagle, who stated 
that as the representative of students at UM/Boston on the Board, 
he wished to be recorded in opposition to the granting of tenure to 
Dean Strange of College III at UM/Boston, saying that he had reser- 
vations about the manner in which this recommendation had come to 
the Board.

President Wood emphasized that the tenure recommendations 
to be forwarded to him and the Board next year would be expected to 
conform fully to Trustee policy and administrative procedures, and 
added that this should be clearly understood on the campuses. 
Upon the motion being made and seconded, it was then 

VOTED : To concur with the appointments to tenure 

proposed by the President of the University 
and contained in Documents T74-096 and 
T74-097. 

Trustee Troy next addressed three proposed appointments 
with tenure. The first, the Promotion of Dr. Neal C. Brown to 
Professor of Pharmacology with Tenure and Designation as Chairman 
of the Department of Pharmacology, UM/Worcester (Doc. T74-091) , 
was presented as being the result of a nation-wide search to fill 
that new position at the Medical School; and it was accordingly 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To concur in the promotion of Neal C. Brown to 
Professor of Pharmacology "A" with Tenure, 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester. 

and 

VOTED : To approve the designation of Neal C. Brown as 
Chairman of the Department of Pharmacology, 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester. 

A proposed Offer of Employment with Tenure to James E . 
Humphreys, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-090) , was discussed as being impor- 
tant for and consistent with the needs and long-range plans of the 
Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Amherst campus, 
and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Chancellor, UM/Amherst, or his designee, 
be authorized to extend an offer of employment to 
James E. Humphreys as Associate Professor of 
Mathematics and Statistics with Tenure, Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Amherst, effective

Trustee Troy then presented an Offer of Employment with 
Tenure to Kenneth M. Dolbeare, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-089) . He 
noted that Professor Dolbeare holds a law degree as well as a 
doctorate in political science, and that his appointment had been 
endorsed by political scientists of national stature. It was 
accordingly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Chancellor, UM/Amherst, or his designee, 
be authorized to extend an offer of employment to

Science with Tenure, University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, effective September 1, 1974. 

The proposed Establishment of a Western European Area 
Studies Program, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-087) , was discussed as 
giving greater focus and direction to course offerings in this area 
of specialization and being parallel to existing area concentra- 
tions in Asian and Latin American Studies, Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a Western 
European Studies Program leading to a 
Certificate in Western Studies, University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst, as contained 
in Trustee Document T74-087. 

Trustee Troy next recommended approval of Establishment 
of a Two-Year Pilot Program in Women's Studies, UM/Amherst (Doc. 
T74-093) , noting that there now exist some fifty courses which may 
be subsumed under this field of study, as well as otheis offered by 
the Five Colleges consortium. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a two-year pilot 
program in Women's Studies, University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst, as contained in Trustee 
Document T74-093. 

Action was then requested on the Establishment of a Five 
College Major in Black Studies, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-088) . Trustee 
Troy stated that final approval and implementation of the program 
is contingent upon its being approved by the other four institu- 
tions of Five Colleges, Incorporated. It was accordingly moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a Five College 
Black Studies Major for the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, as contained in 
Trustee Document T74-088. Implementation of 
this program is to be contingent upon the 
program's being approved by the Presidents 
of the other four institutions of Five Colleges, 
Incorporated. Upon such approval, the existing 
major of the Afro-American Studies Program at 
the University of Massachusetts shall be 
discontinued. 

Two similar actions to effect the Transfer of the Computet: 



and Information Science Program and Polymer Science and Engineering 



Program from the Graduate School to the Faculty of Natural Sciences 



and Mathematics, with Change in Status, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-094) , 
were addressed. Trustee Troy stated that the development in 
quality and size of these programs now warranted the conferring of 
departmental status, and that no additional financial resources 
would be required by these actions. Upon motion made and seconded, 
it was 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To approve the transfer of the Computer and

and Engineering Program from the Graduate

as contained in Trustee Document T74-094. 

Committee discussion of a Personnel Matter, UM/Amherst , 
concerning Professor Frank A. Singer, was noted, with no action 
having been taken. 

The Graduation Lists, Spring 1974 , UM/Amherst, UM/Boston, 
and UM/Worcester , were next discussed by Trustee Troy. He stated 
that because the Spring term was not yet completed, and the Board 
would not meet again in time to vote on the awarding of degrees, 
action was now being requested with the specific provision that the 
approval was contingent upon certain requirements being met. 
Chairman Healey noted that this was a change in procedure, in that 
the Board had formerly voted approval following certification of 
the graduation lists by the campus Registrars, but that with 
degrees now being granted at three campuses, and no Board meeting 
being held in conjunction with commencement exercises, this is an 
appropriate manner in which to proceed. It was accordingly moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the undergraduate, graduate and 

Division of Continuing Education degrees to be 
awarded by UM/Amherst on June 1, 1974, by the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture at UM/Amherst 
on May 31, 1974, by UM/Boston on June 6, 1974, 
and by UM/Worcester on May 25, 1974, subject to 
the completion of course and other requirements 
and final certification by the Registrar at 
each campus. 

Trustee Knowles reported for the Buildings and Grounds 
Committee, noting that the Committee on April 17 had reviewed the 
current status of issues it had discussed or voted upon for each 
campus during the past academic year. She summarized in this con- 
nection information contained in the minutes of the Committee for 
April 17, dealing with the problem of vibration in the boilers, the 
revised design for the courtyard, the parking garage feasibility 
study, the question of student housing, and other matters at UM/ 
Worcester. For UM/Boston, Trustee Knowles noted progress in land- 
scaping of the Harbor Campus, the nearly finished development of

working drawings for Building 030 and the gymnasium, the need for 
reduction in total parking spaces because of new regulations 
related to environmental standards, the success of the free shuttle 
bus system, and the fact that garage use has been lower than 
anticipated. Trustee Knowles said that, for UM/ Amherst, Professor 
Progulske, Head of the Department of Forestry and Wildlife Manage- 
ment, had reviewed for the Committee policy proposals for the use 
and management of forest lands owned by the University. She 
noted further that the Committee had discussed a proposed agree- 
ment between the Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, 
UM/ Amherst, and Stanley Bohonowicz, for the use of land in South 
Deerfield. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer of the University, 
Kenneth W. Johnson, to execute agreements from 
time to time whereby the Department of 
Veterinary and Animal Sciences of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, Amherst, for a nominal 
consideration, may cultivate certain crops on 
lands of Stanley Bohonowicz in South' Deerfield, 
Franklin County, Massachusetts for the use and 
benefit of the University. 

In conclusion, Trustee Knowles commented on UM/ Amherst 
progress in connection with the Fine Arts Center, the power plant, 
the infirmary, modular housing, and the repair of fire loss at 
Tobin Hall. She said that the Committee planned to work with the 
Chancellors in establishing a regularized procedure for soliciting 
names of buildings from the campuses. 

Trustee Rowland reported that the Long-Range Planning 
Committee had met on April 22, that she had shared with the Com- 
mittee a letter from Secretary Cronin expressing support for 
Trustee activity in planning, and that she had written directly to 
the Secretary in reply. Vice President Lynton had assured the 
Committee that work is continuing on the establishment of the 
Advisory Council on the Fine Arts; Trustee Rowland said she was 
hopeful that the Council could be appointed by the President and 
be active by the fall semester or sooner. She reported on the 
Committee's consideration of enrollment planning for the Harbor 
Campus, saying that the Committee had utilized alternative enroll- 
ment patterns prepared by Mr. Cooley for a discussion of factors 
that may affect the size and nature of the future student body at 
that campus. Trustee Rowland said the summary of issues and dis- 
cussion included in the minutes of the April 27 meeting could not 
fully convey the quality of the session. She noted Chancellor 
Golino's attendance at the April 22 meeting and the Committee's 
appreciation for his assistance. Trustee Rowland reminded the 
Board that in February she had expressed the hope that the Commit- 
tee's work this year would result in some positive action by the 
Trustees. In this regard, the Committee will develop a policy 
statement on UM/Boston enrollment planning for consideration at 
the June meeting of the Board.

Chairman Healey then recognized President Wood who spoke 
briefly with regard to honorary degree matters he had discussed 
with Trustees in the informal session at the request of Chancellor 
Bromery. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the addition of one further 

candidate to the list of those to be awarded 
honorary degrees by the Board of Trustees at 
the UM/ Amherst 1974 Commencement, with 
discretion provided to award the degree

Committee earlier in the day, and it was moved, seconded, and 



VOTED : 



and further 



VOTED : 



That the Board of Trustees confirm and approve 
the Personnel Action involving changing of title 
and salary adjustments as detailed in Trustee 
Document T74-098. 



That every Personnel Action shall be subject to 
the policies and procedures now in effect as 
subsequently amended, revised, added to, or 
repealed by the Board of Trustees with respect 
to professional personnel under Provisions of 
Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended by 
Chapter 648, 1962. The classification, salary 
range, and descriptive job specifications for 
each position to which a member of the profes- 
sional staff is hereby appointed, promoted, 
transferred, or determined by the Board of

Chairman Healey then spoke of the appreciation of the 
University for the long and helpful service of Dennis Crowley as 
a member of the Board of Trustees, and proposed the following 
resolution, which was unanimously adopted: 

RESOLVED : That the Board of Trustees express their appreciation 
to Dennis M. Crowley and enter this expression into 
the minutes of this meeting as follows: 

That the completion of Dennis Crowley's third 
term as a Trustee of the University should come 
to be marked here on this campus in Amherst is most 
happy and fitting. For it was here among these 
hills and in some of these buildings that our good 
friend and colleague began his long association 
with the University as a member of the Class of 1929.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

A full half century ago, Dennis, your campus 
leadership was reflected by your activities as a 
class officer, President of the Honor Council, 
member of the football team, of the yearbook staff, 
and of the rather formidable sounding Varsity 
Debating Team. 



P 



As this campus and the University have grown 
and matured over these past years, the quality of 
your service has provided great underlying strength. 
A constant and loyal friend of this institution, 
you served on the Alumni Fund Committee, the Alumni 
Transition Committee, and the Alumni Foundation. 
As a member of this Board of Trustees since 1952, 
you have served on the Executive Committee and been 
Chairman of both the Athletic Committee and the 
Faculty Committee. 

Infrequently do we have occasion to honor 
someone who has done so much. Our gratitude on 
this Board, and that of students, faculty, and 
staff, past and present, goes beyond our words, 
which are simple and direct. Thank You. 

After this unanimous action, the Board of Trustees stood 
to applaud former Trustee Crowley who spoke briefly but eloquently 
in response to this recognition. 

Chairman Healey next spoke of the dedicated service of 
John Boyden in completing the last two years of his father's 
term, subsequent to the latter 's death. The Chairman proposed 
the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted: 

RESOLVED : That the Board of Trustees express their 
appreciation to John C. Boyden and enter 
this expression into the minutes of this 
meeting as follows: 

No name means more to the University of 
Massachusetts than Boyden, distinguished through 
two generations of service. John Boyden has 
energetically carried on this tradition by 
filling the last years of his late father's term 
on this Board of Trustees. 

Vigor and great good will have characterized 
your participation with us, John, as they have all 
of your professional activities. Your lifelong 
interest in young people and the quality of their 
education has strengthened the deliberations of 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy 
and the Committee on Student Affairs with which

you served. Your loyalty, sense of fairness and 
capacity for hard work are qualities that we have 
come to rely upon, and this institution has 
benefited from them in your two years as a Trustee. 

We are grateful to you for your devotion to 
the University. 

The Trustees again applauded in recognition of a former 
Trustee's service, and Mr. Boyden in response spoke briefly of his 
gratitude for having had the opportunity to serve with the Board. 

Trustee Carlson was recognized by Chairman Healey, and 
spoke of his respect and appreciation for the work of the two out- 
going Student Trustees, Reginald Cagle and Nicholas Apostola. 
Trustee Carlson said that both men had ably and responsibly dis- 
charged their duties as Trustees, and that the Board was apprecia- 
tive of this fact. Chairman Healey affirmed this warmly and 
recognized Trustee Cagle who spoke of his appreciation and that of 
Mr. Apostola for having had the experience of serving as a Trustee. 

There being no further business to come before the Board, 
the meeting was adjourned at 4:45 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Chairman asked President Wood to speak to the amend- 
ment of the meeting of the Board of Trustees of February 6, 1974. 
The President explained that, inadvertently, Board approval of the 
Executive Compensation Plan, circulated to and discussed by the 
Trustees had not been formally accomplished at the February 6 
meeting. He requested action to correct this omission. On motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To amend the Minutes of the Meeting of the Board 
of Trustees of February 6, 1974, to include under 
Personnel Actions adoption of the Executive Com- 
pensation Plan as detailed in Document T74-062. 

The President, at Chairman Healey's request, commented on 
two items before the Trustees. He said that the proposed Policy 
Statement on Enrollment Planning (Doc. T74-105) represented an 
important contribution by the Committee on Long-Range Planning in 
providing the Trustees with initiative on a major policy matter. 
President Wood expressed gratitude to Trustee Rowland, Chairman of 
the Committee on Long-Range Planning, for her leadership in develop- ■ 
ment of the policy proposal for the Board. The President further 
commented on the agenda item relative to Faculty Workload Guide- 
lines (Doc. T74-111) , emphasizing that pending legislation may 
require establishment of such guidelines prior to the release of 
monies to the institution in the coming fiscal year. The President 
indicated his opposition to such legislative requirements, but said 
that, if they remain in the final version of the Appropriations 
Bill, the Board of Trustees must certify compliance in order for an 
funds to be allotted to the University. He said that, in view of 
this possibility, he was proposing in a later vote that the Board 
comply with possible legislation by authorizing the President to 
issue a set of initial guidelines to be implemented in September 
1974, while at the same time they would be reviewed and, where 
needed, revised in consultation with appropriate governance bodies. 
The President indicated that, if the requirements are removed from 
the legislation, he would propose to submit such guidelines to the 
campus for discussion and review, looking toward further Board 
consideration of the matter during the coming year. He emphasized 
his intention to develop a reporting system with regard to faculty 
work which will focus on meaningful averages and aggregates for 
major instructional units, in order to provide the Trustees and the 
General Court with data on workloads in an appropriate fashion. 

At the President's request, Chancellor Bromery reported 
briefly on the 1974 Commencement Exercises stating that in the 
future it will be his intention to hold all Commencement Exercises 
on the Amherst campus in the stadium, subject only to a two-hour 
maximum delay in the event of bad weather. The Chancellor further 
commented on two recent memorable events which, in his judgment, 
underlined the possibility and need for adequate communication and 
responsible human relations in the interest of human justice and

fulfillment. He said that the death of Edward Kennedy (Duke) 
Ellington underscored how much one person could achieve through 
communication in art in a racially diverse society. Chancellor 
Bromery said that, on the other hand, the 20th anniversary of the 
desegregation decision of the United States Supreme Court in 1954 
underscored how communication can fail, that the Court's admonition 
to move toward desegregation with "all deliberate speed" is now 
almost forgotten. The Chancellor urged that the University support 
communication and interrelationships which will contribute to the 
welfare and fulfillment of all people. 

Chancellor Golino reminded the Board of Trustees that 
the first Commencement to be held at the Harbor Campus would occur 
at 4 p.m. on June 6. He said that the decision to conduct the 
Commencement in the plaza area of the Harbor Campus had been made 
by graduating students, even though they had spent three-and-a- 
half years of their undergraduate education at the in-town campus. 
The Chancellor observed that this choice indicated the pride 
students have in the new Harbor Campus. 

Chancellor Soutter briefly described the first graduate 
exercises held at the Medical School on May 25, 1974, at which 
time 16 persons received the M.D. degree. The Chancellor spoke 
of his gratification at this event, occurring ten years after his 
appointment as Dean, and of his hope that classes may grow in size 
to a 1975 fall enrollment of 100 new students. 

At the Chairman's request, Trustee Rowland reported for 
the Long-Range Planning Committee. She began by reviewing pro- 
gress toward establishment of the Advisory Council on the Fine 
Arts, named some of the distinguished persons who have agreed to 
serve on the Council, and said that she expected to be able to 
present the complete list of Council membership to the Board at 
its next meeting. She called attention to the booklet memorial- 
izing presentation of the 1973 University Medal for Outstanding 
Service, which includes the remarks made at the time of the award 
by recipient Professors Thomas N. Brown and Seymour Shapiro. 
Trustee Rowland mentioned to the Board her recent conversation 
with Mrs. McCartney, and suggested that the Trustees might wish 
to communicate to former Secretary Robert McCartney their wishes 
for his further progress toward complete recovery from his current 
hospitalization. This suggestion was warmly endorsed by the 
Chairman and all other members of the Board. 

Trustee Rowland then presented for consideration the 
Policy Statement on Enrollment Planning, Harbor Campus — UM/Boston 
Doc. T74-105) recommended by her Committee. She said that the 
Long-Range Planning Committee had met on May 20 and again on the 
morning of the present meeting. The major topic had been consider- 
ation of a policy statement and guidelines on enrollment at the 
Harbor Campus of the University of Massachusetts/Boston. Trustee

Rowland thanked the members of the Committee, Vice President Robin- 
son, and Mr. Cooley for the hard work which the draft Statement 
represented. She said that the Statement was the result of six 
months of work by the Committee. Trustee Rowland said she believed 
that the Statement provided an appropriate framework within which 
detailed planning can take place and the future of the Harbor Campus 
can develop. She said that the Committee's Statement was intended t(j> 
continue the Trustees 's commitment to building a great public urban 
university in Boston, and to do so in a realistic and responsive 
manner. In the brief discussion that followed, Professor Brown 
said that the proposed policy statement would be viewed very 
seriously at the campus level, and that he hoped, as a member of the 
New Directions Committee of the campus, that the policy statement 
might receive review and evaluation over time. Chairman Healey 
indicated that this would be the case. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees hereby adopt and direct 
the President and Chancellor to implement, in con- 
sultation with the Long-Range Planning Committee 
of the Board, the following Policy Statement and 
Policy Guidelines on Enrollment at the Harbor 
Campus of the University of Massachusetts/Boston: 

When the University of Massachusetts at Boston was 
established by the legislature in 1965, universities 
and colleges across the country were caught up in an 
unprecedented expansion. The number of students 
enrolled in Massachusetts increased from 113,000 to 
300,000 during the 1960's, and now total 327,000. 
Northeastern University doubled in size; Boston 
University went from 18,000 to 23,000 undergraduates; 
15 new community colleges were established. The com- 
bined enrollment of the University and the State 
colleges grew by 50,000. Even so, the Board of 
Higher Education in 1968 projected a shortage of 
113,000 student places by 1980. 

When the University's Board of Trustees set an 
enrollment of 15,000 students for the Boston campus, 
it was generally regarded as an interim goal rather 
than a maximum. The early academic master plan 
spoke of 15,000 students in four colleges, with pro- 
vision for two additional colleges. 

In February, 1973, the Trustees changed the enroll- 
ment goal for the Columbia Point campus from 15,000 to 
12,500. This change was related primarily to the desire 
to preserve the option of locating educational programs 
in other areas of the city. It was also related to new 
University-generated analyses which suggested that the 
state-wide BHE projections for 1980 were as much as 
150,000 students too high.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The decision to reduce future enrollment has proven 
sound in several ways: 

— it reduced neighborhood fears regarding the 
effect of the campus on adjacent communities; 

— it reduced the capital outlay requirements at 
Columbia Point by at least $50 million; 

— it anticipated changes in national and state 
birth and enrollment rates; 

— it has permitted the continued careful develop- 
ment of a high-quality program. 

While 12,500 has remained the enrollment target for 
the campus, it has offered little specific guidance for 
planning. Important efforts at the campus such as the 
New Directions Committee have had to operate without 
authoritative assumptions as to the composition of the 
student body or the rate of growth. It has become 
increasingly clear that further definition is required 
if the physical and program development is to continue. 

The following guidelines on the nature and timing of 
future enrollment growth at the Harbor Campus are based 
on the work of the Long-Range Planning Committee and 
staff analyses of the Planning Office. They are intended 
as a framework within which detailed planning can go 
forward within the University. 

In this context, the Trustees acknowledge the work 
of the New Directions Committee and its continuing con- 
cern with a broad-range of development issues for the 
Harbor Campus. The Committee's report, which is due 
this summer, will be reviewed by the University Assembly 
and the Chancellor. The Long-Range Planning Committee 
of the Board will be glad to receive any recommendations 
that result from these reviews. 

The guidelines are as follows: 

1. the 1980 enrollment target for the Harbor Campus 
should be 10,000 full- and part-time students ; 

Original campus enrollment goals for 1980 assumed 
the kind of very rapid expansion which character- 
ized UM/Amherst during the 1960's. They also 
reflected the intention to develop a series of 
similar liberal arts colleges. More recent 
developments — the nature of Colleges III and IV, 



I

I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the time needed for new program development, 
changes in application patterns, the desire for 
slow selective growth in graduate programs, budget 
constraints and the slowdown in capital outlay — 
all suggest a revised calendar. The 10,000 
enrollment goal is head-count — both full- and part- 
time students — and represents an average enroll- 
ment increase of 600 students per year between 
1974 and 1980. It is understood that there is 
intended to be considerable flexibility as to the 
rate of growth, including the possibility of 
reaching this target prior to 1980. 

2. the full enrollment target for the mid-1980 's should 
be 12,500 full- and part-time students ; 

The 12,500 enrollment goal can be assumed to be the 
"ceiling" for the Harbor Campus. It is a head- 
count goal — both full- and part-time students — and 
is intended to be reached between 1983-1987. The 
12,500 ceiling does not apply to programs of UMass/ 
Boston at other locations, such as the Downtown 
Center. 

3. these enrollments should be assumed to include 
15-25% part-time students, and may be proportion- 
ately lower if this percentage is not reached ; 

Fewer than 10% of the present students at the Harbor 
Campus are part-time. Current demand projections, 
and the commitment of the Harbor Campus to serving 
older and low-income students suggest that this 
percentage can and should be substantially increased 
so that 15-25% of the overall enrollment will be 
part-time students. A change of this nature raises 
important questions of financing and of educational 
program development that will attract and respond to 
the needs of part-time students. 

4. the proportion of upper division students should be 
increased to reach a ratio of approximately 60:40 ; 

The existence of four growing community colleges 
in the Boston area presents the University with both 
an opportunity and a responsibility to direct sub- 
stantial attention to the needs of transfer students. 
The signing of the transfer "compact" is the first 
step in this direction. We are recommending con- 
tinuing efforts which would move toward a ratio of 
60% upper- division to 40% lower-division students 
rather than the present 50:50 division at the campus.

5. the number of graduate students should not exceed 
10-15% of the total number of students ; 

The interim report of the New Directions Committee 
of UMass/Boston clearly identifies the strong case 
for a most careful, selective, and measured growth 
in graduate programs at the Harbor Campus. The 
Committee has accepted a maximum at full development 
of 10% of the FTE (full-time equivalent) enrollment, 
given the assumptions outlined. The guideline of 
10-15% refers to head-count enrollment. 

6. class scheduling and space planning for the campus 
should be undertaken so as to accommodate the full 
anticipated enrollment in four college buildings . 

The experience since January and internal analyses 
suggest that the enrollments indicated can be accom- 
modated in four college buildings of approximately 
the size of the two now occupied at the campus. This 
will require careful attention to imaginative and 
intensive space use and assumes the scheduling of 
additional late afternoon and/or early evening 
classes. The omission of a fifth classroom building 
will reduce capital outlay requirements, but 
explicit provision must be made for the siting of 
an additional college building if demand suggests 
in the 1980' s. 

Trustee Troy, invited by the Chairman to report for the 
Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy, said that, with the 
assistance of appropriate administrators, he chose to present recom- 
mended actions rather than a detailed review of his Committee's 
discussions. At his request, Chancellor Golino gave strong endorse- 
ment to the appointment of Dr. Richard Freeland as Dean of College 
IV, UM/Boston, and asked concurrence in this appointment. President 
Wood said that he was happy to join in the Chancellor's recommenda- 
tion for concurrence, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees, along with the President 
of the University, concur in the appointment of 
Dr. Richard Freeland as Dean of College IV (College 
of Professional Studies), UM/Boston, Harbor Campus, 
effective July 1, 1974. 

Trustee Troy then reported his Committee's recommendation 
for award of tenure to Professor Don Eric Levine, UM/ Amherst (Doc. 
T74-108), and the appointment of Dr. John Palmer as Professor of 
Zoology, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-109) . After brief discussion, and 
upon motion made and seconded, it was 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees concur in the awarding 
of tenure to Don E. Levine as Assistant Professor 
of Comparative Literature, University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst. 



and 



VOTED : That the Chancellor, UM/ Amherst, or his designee 
be authorized to extend an offer of employment 
to John Palmer as Professor of Zoology with 
tenure, and as Chairman of the Department of 
Zoology, UM/ Amherst, effective September 1, 1974. 

Trustee Troy introduced next a recommendation of his 
Committee for the establishment of interdepartmental majors in the 
College of Arts and Sciences at UM/Amherst. At his request, Vice 
Chancellor Gluckstern explained the desirability of providing for 
the possibility of interdepartmental majors as described in Document 
T74-104. Then, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve the procedures 

and guidelines for the creation of interdepartmental 
majors within the College of Arts and Sciences, 
UM/Amherst, as contained in Document T74-104. 

Trustee Troy next took up the matter of Faculty Workload 
Guidelines (Doc. T74-111) and, upon his request, Vice President 
Lynton summarized materials in this regard that had been considered 
by the Committee. He noted that statute may require evidence of 
compliance with the kind of workload standards presently being con- 
sidered by the Legislature, and that it is therefore necessary for 
the President to be enabled to assure such compliance. President 
Wood emphasized this point, and Chairman Healey added that the 
necessity to raise the matter should be seriously considered by 
faculty. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the President be directed to issue guidelines 
for the average instructional workload of full- 
time faculty at the Amherst and Boston campuses, 
in conformance with statute. 

At the request of the Chairman, Trustee Knowles reported 
on the meeting of the Trustee Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
of May 22, 1974. She summarized information and discussion reported 
in the minutes of that meeting, and presented three actions recom- 
mended to the Board by the Committee. The first of these dealt 
with Policy Guidelines for Graduate Student Housing (Doc. T74-099A) . 
Trustee Knowles noted that the Guidelines had been developed by the 
Vice President for Planning and had been thoroughly reviewed at the 
campus level as well as by the Committee. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was

suitable private housing which is reasonably 
accessible to academic facilities; 

2. That the University will seek to identify and 
encourage as diverse as possible a range of 
housing opportunities for graduate students, 
including small and large units, housekeeping 
rooms, apartments, co-ops, etc.; 

3. That the University will undertake to con- 
struct or develop dormitory or apartment units 
for graduate students only if necessary (a) to 
avoid undue adverse impact on the existing 
housing supply in the area, or (b) to supply 
diversity that is otherwise unavailable; 

4. That where University housing is provided, 
rental rates will be established to cover 
maintenance and operating costs as well as 
debt service; 

5. That where University housing is provided, the 
proportion of 10-20 percent of graduate students 
for whom housing is available at the Amherst 
campus will be viewed as a maximum; and . 

6. That where University housing is provided, 
financial need will be considered in assignments.

Trustee Knowles next turned to the proposed Trustee Policy 
Relative to the Management and Use of University Forests (Doc. T74- 
084A) . She indicated that this document was a modification of that 
originally presented on April 17 to the Committee only in that it 
incorporated changes of a technical nature as recommended by Univer- 
sity Counsel. After brief discussion, upon motion made and 
seconded, it was

the Management and Use of University Forests as 
set forth in Document T74-084A, which document is 
attached hereto and made a part of this vote.

Trustee Knowles next discussed Renovations of Farm House 
and Maple Cottage, UM/Worcester , for Student Housing (Doc. T74- 
103), and indicated her Committee's recommendation that these 
renovations be accomplished. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 



3825 



VOTED : That University housing (with preference given to 
students) be developed in two original buildings 
on the site of the University of Massachusetts/ 
Worcester known as the Farm House and the Maple 
Cottage; that this housing include both dormitory 
rooms and apartment units as outlined in Trustee 
Document T74-103; that this housing be completely 
self-supporting; and that this vote take effect 
upon recommendation to the Board from the Finance 
Committee to establish an appropriate trust fund 
and identify initial financing. 

Trustee Knowles concluded her report by stating that her 
Committee had requested a report on the Fine Arts Center at UM/ 
Amherst to determine the progress being made to resolve various 
architectural problems there. 

At the Chairman's request, Trustee Gordon reported for 
the Committee on Finance, taking up first the development of an 
optional student health insurance plan for UM/ Amherst. In this 
connection, Chancellor Bromery summarized efforts to develop a 
plan which would control inflation of fees and provide for better 
coverage. Trustee Gordon indicated that it had not been possible 
for the Finance Committee to satisfy itself on this matter in time 
to recommend a specific plan to the Board, but that it wished an 
authorization which would enable the University to move forward 
with the matter in the future. Upon motion made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer of the University in 
consultation with the Chairman of the Finance 
Committee of the Board of Trustees, President 
Wood, and General Counsel Searson, to enter into 
negotiations with Higham, Nelson, Whitridge and 
Reid, Inc., of Boston to provide a Student Health 
Insurance Program for students on the Amherst 
campus for the period September 1, 1974, to 
August 31, 1975, and, with the approval of the 
above-named individuals, to sign a contract on 
behalf of the University for said insurance pro- 
gram, and any other ancillary contracts necessary 
or desirable for the implementation of said 
program.

Trustee Gordon reported that the Finance Committee at its 
meeting earlier on June 5 had deferred action on Establishment of 
Commencement Fee for Use in Commencement and Career Planning Goals — 
UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-095A) . He then took up the Committee's recom- 
mendation with regard to Establishment of Student Activities Fee — 
UM/ Amherst (Doc. T74-113) . Vice Chancellor Gage said that he 
regarded the proposed fee as responsible and reasonable and Trustee 
Savini concurred with this view. Upon motion made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : That, effective July 1, 1974, the annual fee of 
$57.00, which includes $55.50 for the Student 
Senate Tax and $1.50 for the Distinguished 
Visitors Program, be established as the Student 
Activities Fee for University undergraduate 
students on the Amherst campus. 

Trustee Pumphret, at the Chairman's request, reported for 
the Committee on the Budget and on the Joint Meeting of the Finance 
and Budget Committees held on May 20, 1974. He first addressed the 
FY 1974 Revised Operating Budget Allocations (Doc. T74-101) , 
covering budget transfers for the three campuses. He reported 
the Budget Committee's recommendation that transfers so requested 
be approved, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the requested revisions to the FY 1974 
Operating Budget for UM/Amherst, UM/Boston, and 
UM/Worcester , as contained in Trustee Document 
T74-101.

Trustee Pumphret next reported his Committee's recommenda- 
tion for the adoption of a continuing resolution authorizing FY 1975 
expenditures prior to adoption of the Operating Budget for FY 1975, 
and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the President be authorized to approve the 
expenditure of State and non-state funds by the 
three campuses, the Office of the President, and 
the Institute for Governmental Services from 
July 1, 1974, until such time as the Board of 
Trustees adopts the Operating Budget for FY 1975. 

The approval of expenditure of State funds shall 
be consistent with the appropriate State statutes 
governing the FY 1975 appropriation. 

The approval of expenditures of non-state funds 
shall be consistent with the general policies 
established by the Board of Trustees governing 
these funds. 

Trustee Pumphret then reviewed the FY 1975 Fee-Based 
Budget, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-095A) . He noted and explained each 



of the thirteen actions proposed in the Budget and recommended for 
approval by the Budget Committee. After this review and discussion, 
and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the thirteen actions recommended by 
the Committee on the Budget as specified in the 
Minutes of the Joint Meeting of the Committee on 
Finance and the Committee on the Budget on 
May 20, 1974, and as detailed in FY 1975 Fee- 
Based Budget, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-095A) . 

Chairman Healey and Treasurer Johnson spoke to the need 
for appropriate Board action to enable implementation of a cost-of- 
living increase following enactment of such an increase into law 
by the Governor and the Legislature. Upon motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : That, in accordance with the provision of Section 14 
of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended, and, 
following enactment into law by the Governor and 
the Legislature, in accordance with the annual cost- 
of-living increase for state employees and all other 
acts applicable thereto, each officer and member 
of the professional staff of the University of 
Massachusetts employed in a position paid in whole 
or in part from state funds under subsidiary accounts 
designated 01 and 02 shall for the period beginning 
December 30, 1973, have the rate of his regular 
salary otherwise paid or payable on December 29, 1973,

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

increased by the amount specified as an annual cost- 
of-living increase. Such increase shall not be 
applied to any salary rate previously fixed by vote 
of the Trustees, or under authority delegated by the 
Trustees, for any such new professional employee 
entering the service of the University of Massachu- 
setts on or after December 30, 1973. The President 
of the University is hereby authorized to take all 
actions necessary or desirable to implement said 
cost-of-living increase and to also apply an increase 
not to exceed the amount enacted into law as an 
annual cost-of-living increase to the regular 
salary in the same manner to all members of the pro- 
fessional staff and classified employees normally 
paid from other than state funds who in his judg- 
ment are in categories of employment equivalent to 
the intent and scope of said cost-of-living 
increase legislation. Provided, however, that in 
the case of those paid from institute, grant or 
contract funds the recommendations and certifi- 
cation of the availability of funds by the cognizant 
principal investigator or director shall be a 
prerequisite to the payment of any such increase. 

Chairman Healey then asked Trustee Gordon to report as 
Delegate to the Board of Higher Education. Trustee Gordon announced 
his resignation from this responsibility after five years of 
service, in which he said that he had witnessed the development of 
the Board as a growing entity. He paid particular tribute to the 
leadership of Chairman Adam of the Board of Higher Education, and 
reviewed problems of public-private sector interrelationships faced 
by the Board. Trustee Gordon said that the University, both within 
the Board of Higher Education and elsewhere has taken initiative in 
seeking to develop cooperation between the public and the private 
sectors. President Wood acknowledged Trustee Gordon's significant 
service as Delegate to the Board of Higher Education, and commented 
that he had been a forthright spokesman who had made a major 
contribution in that capacity. Chairman Healey also commended 
Trustee Gordon for this service, and noted that Trustee Gordon had 
represented the University's position of complete cooperation with 
the private sector consistent with the welfare of the University. 

Mr. Lee Sandwen, representing the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion, observed that Mr. Gordon's service and contribution had been 
greatly valued by that Board. He said that the Board of Higher 
Education is grateful to the University of Massachusetts Trustees 
for assistance in the public/private area. Chairman Healey spoke 
of the special contribution being made by Father Walsh in develop- 
ing cooperation between the public and private sectors and expressed 
the Board's appreciation for this assistance.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the status of developments in veterinary education as these relate 
to the University. President Wood referred to enactment of legis- 
lation assigning Grafton State Hospital land to the jurisdiction 
of the Secretary of Administration and Finance for a period of 
four years, during which the Secretary for Educational Affairs would 
explore the possibilities of developing a regional school of 
veterinary medicine in which at least four out of the six New 
England states might participate. The President spoke further of 
the report of the Task Force on Veterinary Medicine which had been 
commissioned by the six land-grant institutions of the region and 
completed in June. He said that the report recommended adoption of 
a system of contracting for educational services in veterinary 
medicine with institutions outside of the state and region. By 
such a contracting system, the Task Force report suggested that 
approximately $20 million in capital expenditure for the construction 
of a new regional facility for veterinary medicine could be saved. 
President Wood said that the Secretary for Educational Affairs 
had been asked to examine ways in which such a contracting system 
could be developed within Massachusetts law, and that he would have 
further information on such possibilities at a later date. Trustee 
Abrams asked whether out-of-state programs would provide enough 
vacancies to take care of veterinary students from Massachusetts; 
the President replied that he believed this to be the case in terms 
of contemplated developments at the University of Pennsylvania, 
Purdue, and elsewhere, but that the question raised requires 
further study to determine a conclusive answer. 

Chairman Healey recognized Trustee Savini who called the 
Board's attention briefly to the Student Senate Budget, UM/Amherst. 
Trustee Savini said that he wished the University Trustees to be 
aware of the size and complexity of the Student Senate Budget at 
the Amherst campus, and of the important contribution to campus 
activities represented by the activities and expenditures described 
in the document. Trustee Savini made copies of the budget available 
for all members of the Board, for distribution at the conclusion 
of the meeting. 

President Wood then asked Chancellor Bromery to report 
for the Amherst campus. The Chancellor introduced Professor 
Stevenson Fletcher as the new faculty representative to the Board 
of Trustees from UM/Amherst, replacing Professor Seymour Shapiro. 
Chancellor Bromery then spoke to the Board about the death of 
Monsignor Power on August 1, as follows: 

Monsignor Power will long be remembered here at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst for his close associa- 
tion and many contributions to our campus community. It was 
therefore fitting that the University demonstrated its appre- 
ciation and deep respect by awarding him with an Honorary 
Doctorate of Humane Letters at the 1974 Commencement. I will 
long remember his remark to me at the time: "This is one of 
the proudest and happiest moments of my life." 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Monsignor Power and I had a very special and close 
relationship with a deep understanding, affection, and respect 
that began soon after I arrived here at the University in 
1967. He has provided a strong moral leadership and love for 
the student body regardless of their religious affiliations, 
offering to many a special understanding and guidance which 
is far too often overlooked by today's parents. 

Quietly and behind the scenes, Monsignor Power worked 
in many ways to help support and assist in the development of 
the CCEBS program here on the Amherst campus. The low-key 
anonymity was the hallmark of his style. 

The excellent facilities and viable program of our 
campus Newman Center built eleven years ago, will serve as 
a permanent tribute to his vision, dedication, and hard work. 
Many thousands of our students have benefited from his counsel 
as Catholic Chaplain for the past thirty years. I deeply 
mourn the loss of a close friend and pastor, and along with 
the many faculty and staff say, we are better for having 
known him. 

Chairman Healey in this connection recognized Bishop Weldon for 
further comment with regard to Monsignor Power. Bishop Weldon said 
that, on behalf of the family of Monsignor Power, of the Diocese 
of Springfield and himself, he wished to express his appreciation 
for cooperation the University had extended to Monsignor Power 
during the thirty years of his service at the Amherst campus. 
Bishop Weldon said that the tribute paid Monsignor Power at his 
funeral had been deeply gratifying, and that he wished further to 
thank the Trustees for their thoughtfulness in extending to 
Monsignor Power the recognition conferred by honorary degree at the 
June 1974 Commencement. 

Chancellor Golino reported for UM/Boston that he and 
President Wood recently visited the Nantucket station of the 
University, and that he was pleased to inform the Trustees of a 
$31,000 grant received from the National Endowment for the Human- 
ities to enable faculty and a group of students to spend the coming 
academic year at Nantucket studying that island's particular 
heritage and resources. 

Chairman Healey then reported for the Executive Committee, 
with reference to two recommendations made by that body to the 
full Board. With regard to the Memorandum of Understanding RE : 
House Bill No. 6368 of 1974 (Doc. T75-014) , related to the Group 
Practice Plan at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, 
the Chairman and President reviewed the circumstances leading to 
this agreement, which had been the subject of extensive discussion 
in the Executive Committee itself. Chairman Healey said that the 
memorandum had the support of the Executive Committee, which 
recommended its ratification and approval. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was

VOTED : To ratify and approve the Memorandum of

the Commonwealth, as set forth in Trustee 
Document T75-014. 

At the Chairman's request, President Wood explained the 
need for the Interim Guide on Salaries for the Group Practice Plan 
at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (Doc. T75-013) 
and summarized discussion of this matter which had taken place 
earlier in the Executive Committee. Chancellor Soutter indicated 
that the Interim Guide is generally in line with national practice 
in connection with similar plans and would provide an initial basis 
for guiding faculty compensation within the Group Practice Plan 
at the Medical School, pending the development of more specific 
rules, regulations, and account structures. Chairman Healey said 
that the Interim Guide had the support of the Executive Committee, 
and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt Trustee Document T75-013 as an interim 
guide on salaries for the Group Practice Plan 
at the University of Massachusetts Medical 
School pending the formal adoption of rules and 
regulations by the Board and in conformance 
with the Memorandum of Understanding between 
the University and the Commonwealth. 

Chairman Healey next called on Trustee Troy to report for 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. Trustee Troy 
discussed and offered as a group four actions recommended by his 
Committee at its meeting of August 5, 1974, saying that in each 
case the Committee had been fully satisfied by the documentation 
provided. Therefore, upon motion made and seconded, it was

ment at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst be abolished, effective September, 1974. 



Trustee Troy next reported his Committee's recommendation 
for Concurrence in Appointment of Dr. Ira Trail as Professor of 
Nursing with Tenure at UM/ Amherst (Doc. T75-005) . Trustee Troy 
said that he, the Committee, and University officials regarded the 
appointment of Dr. Trail as a distinguished one, providing UM/ 
Amherst with a woman of outstanding preparation and experience to 
serve as Director of the Division of Nursing. Upon motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To concur in the appointment by the President 
of Dr. Ira Trail as Professor of Nursing, with 
tenure, at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, effective September 1, 1974. 

Next Trustee Troy introduced consideration of the Com- 
mittee's recommendation for Concurrence in Appointment of Robert 
Spaethling (Doc. T75-010) as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs 
and Provost of the University of Massachusetts at Boston, and 
Concurrence in Appointment of Robert Steamer (Doc. T75-011) as Dean 
of College II at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. He 
said that the Committee had given both appointments thorough con- 
sideration, had concluded that both individuals were well-qualified 
for the positions in question, and their appointments should be 
recommended for concurrence. Trustee Savini indicated that he 
would vote against both appointments, not because of the individ- 
uals concerned, but because he felt that affirmative action should 
be a first priority in all appointments and that satisfactory 
affirmative action procedures had not been followed in these two 
cases. President Wood indicated his support for concurrence, and 
reviewed with the Board the exchanges that he and Chancellor Golino 
had had with the campus Affirmative Action Advisory Council in 
connection with the appointments. He said that he had shared with 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy the documents

exchanged with the Affirmative Action Advisory Council and would be 
glad to do so with any other Trustees interested. The President 
observed that in these instances the central issue in terms of 
affirmative action was whether in the selection of senior academic 
administrators it was invariably necessary and desirable to go out- 
side the University in a search for candidates. He commented that 
this would be the case only if the overall pattern of appointments 
revealed an indifference to affirmative action considerations, in 
which case there would be cause for concern. He said further that 
in the case of the Boston campus the facts did not suggest such a 
restrictive pattern. Trustee Troy spoke of his conclusion that, in 
the instance of these two appointments, procedure had been satis- 
factory and was not a critical matter compared to the need of the 
campus for stability in its administrative structure. Chancellor 
Golino said that the search committees in each case, established 
according to governance policy, had decided on the search pro- 
cedures they would use and had had wide-spread campus support. He 
commented further that UM/Boston, in his view, has and will continue 
to have a deep commitment to affirmative action and is currently 
developing a policy statement in this regard in conformance with 
HEW standards. Trustee Bicknell observed that he would vote "no" 
on both appointments, not because of the individuals involved, but 
because of his exception to the procedures followed. Trustee Abrams 
asked for specificity about the complaint on procedure, and Presi- 
dent Wood replied that the basic complaint was that no search had 
been made outside the campus. Chairman Healey asked Trustee Savini 
whether he agreed with this, and the latter replied in the affirma- 
tive saying that there should have been a broader search in consul- 
tation with the Affirmative Action Advisory Council. There being 
no further discussion, upon motion made and seconded, it was

as Professor of Surgery, with Tenure — UM/Worcester (Doc. T75-006) . 
Trustee Croce strongly endorsed this recommendation, saying that 
Dr. Wheeler is an outstanding surgeon and teacher, whose associa- 
tion with the Medical School greatly strengthened its professional 
quality. Upon motion made and seconded, it was

In a final appointment action recommended by his Commit- 
tee, Concurrence in Appointment of Dr. Edgar E. Smith as Associate 
Professor of Biochemistry, with Tenure — UM/Worcester (Doc. T75-008) , 
Trustee Troy spoke both of Dr. Smith's qualifications in Biochemis- 
try and the prospect that he would serve as Associate Dean for 
Academic Affairs. President Wood endorsed Dr. Smith's appointment, 
not only because of the candidate's high professional qualifications, 
but because his background and insight would bring a major step 
forward in affirmative action to the Medical School. Upon motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To concur in the appointment by the President of 
Dr. Edgar E. Smith as Associate Professor of 
Biochemistry, with tenure, at the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester, effective October 1, 
1974. 

As a final item from his Committee, Trustee Troy pre- 
sented its recommendation for Establishment of Department of Family 
Practice — UM/Worcester (Doc. T75-009) . Chancellor Soutter described 
the origin of the program within the Department of Community and 
Family Medicine, and reported the vote of the Executive Committee 
of the Medical School faculty recommending establishment of a 
Department of Family Practice to be separate but related to the 
original department. He said that the Department of Family Practice 
would be devoted to post-graduate residency in its specialization. 
Trustee Robertson asked about the administrative relationship which 
would exist between the new department and the Department of 
Community and Family Medicine, and asked whether the new department 
would require additional cost. Chancellor Soutter replied to the 
first question saying that liaison between the two departments would 
be close and there would be no overlapping in training at the 
graduate level. He replied further that there would not be addi- 
tional costs since the program was already a commitment of the 
School, even while being conducted within the original department. 
Trustee Abrams said that he was not clear why two departments were 
needed and suggested that consideration of the establishment of a 
new Department of Family Practice be deferred until the Crispell 
Committee could advise on the matter. Discussion followed in which 
Trustees Croce and Bicknell and Dr. Bloomberg took part, with 
suggestion that departmental nomenclature should be clarified by 
designating the older unit as a Department of Community Medicine 
and the newer unit as a Department of Family Practice. Trustee

Chairman Healey reported that the Executive Committee, in 
addition to its other business, had reviewed at length a proposal 
to enable Amherst College and the University of Massachusetts to 
effect a transfer of lands which would enable radio antennae 
installation which would be advantageous to broadcasting by both 
institutions. Chairman Healey said that the Executive Committee 
recommended action by the Board of Trustees in this regard. Upon 
reading of the motion by President Wood and its being seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : That the Trustees of the University of Massa- 
chusetts shall accept two quitclaim deeds con- 
veying the fee in two separate parcels of land 
respectively from the Trustees of Amherst 
College as follows: 

Parcel #1: Land which the Trustees of Amherst 
College might own on the summit of

Mount Lincoln, Pelham, County of Hampshire, 
as more fully described in a deed from 
Esther H. Cadwell to the Trustees of 
Amherst College, recorded with Hampshire 
County Registry of Deeds, Book 910, 
Page 206; and 

Parcel #2: Land on Pelham Hill Road consisting of 
3.143 acres as shown on a plan entitled 
"Land in Shutesbury, Mass., surveyed for

recorded with Hampshire County Registry 
of Deeds. 

The consideration of the conveyance of both said 
parcels to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the 
use of the Trustees of the University of Massachusetts 
shall be a license given by said Trustees to the 
Trustees of Amherst College to erect a transmission 
tower and an equipment building on the summit of 
Mount Lincoln for purposes of broadcasting the signal 
of WAMH, the Amherst College student radio station. 
Said license shall be for 99 years or until station 
WAMH ceases to function, whichever event first occurs. 

The Treasurer of the University is hereby authorized 
and empowered to execute all instruments including, 
but not limited to licenses and contracts for and in 
behalf of the University of Massachusetts to implement 
this vote. 

Chairman Healey then recognized Trustee Knowles to report 
as delegate to the Board of Higher Education. Trustee Knowles 
stated that the Board of Higher Education had met on developments 
in connection with the Equal Educational Opportunity Pool program 
and the Public-Private Forum. She said that in discussion at that 
meeting it was felt that the Public-Private Forum had gained 
credibility in the past year and a half although an air of mistrust 
was said to permeate the higher education system at every level. 
She said that the Forum is seen by the Board not as a decisive body 
but as one that can work in a constructive way, with representation 
from both public and private institutions exchanging views. 
Trustee Knowles mentioned further that Title I money for funding 
the Columbia Point Field Office had been received and would enable 
the continuation of this unit which has been in operation for three 
years. Trustee Knowles in addition reported on the July 19 meeting 
of the Board of Higher Education, saying that the calendar for 
1974-75 program approval by the Collegiate Authority had been 
established, indicating that programs for September 1975 must be 
submitted to the Collegiate Authority by January 6, 1975. She said 
that approval had been given to develop a state educational planning

model in cooperation with the National Center for Higher Education 
Management Systems, an effort involving cooperation with other 
states as well. Trustee Knowles reported that the Board of Higher 
Education had established a committee to examine the relationship 
between the Public-Private Forum and the Board of Higher Education, 
and that she had been appointed a member of that committee. She 
said in conclusion that the Board had heard a report on open 
university planning by Dr. Mclntyre of Boston State College. 

President Wood noted that this was the last meeting at 
which Mr. Lee Sandwen would be present as a representative of the 
Board of Higher Education to this Board of Trustees, expressed his 
appreciation for Mr. Sandwen' s helpfulness in this capacity and 
in his former capacity as a student Trustee of the Board, and 
wished him well as he goes on to Harvard Law School. 

Trustee Gordon asked about the status of Student Health 
Insurance planning at UM/ Amherst; Treasurer Johnson indicated that 
these arrangements were presently nearly completed, were agreed upon 
by himself and Counsel, and needed only to have certain formalities 
accomplished to become effective. Trustee Gordon also spoke with 
warmth about Monsignor Power whom he had known over the years, 
first as a student and then as a good friend and expressed the hope 
that Monsignor Power's immense contribution may be remembered by the 
University in some more permanent and appropriate manner than by 
verbal statements. 

Chairman Healey then recognized Mr. Vincent Terrell. 
Mr. Terrell said that he had been a lecturer in Theatre Arts in 
College II of the Harbor Campus for the past three and a half 
semesters in which he has tried to teach theatre to students. He 
said that he had now been denied the right to continue doing so in 
the "most blatant and overt sense," that he had filed charges 
against the University of Massachusetts Harbor Campus because of 
its denial to him of a continuing teaching position. He said that 
he wished the Board to be aware that he felt that he had been 
treated unfairly in not having his employment renewed and that he 
would go to the community to present his case as he sees it. 

Trustee Savini then moved that the Trustees provide for 
the establishment of an ex officio membership on the Board for 
representation of graduate students. Chairman Healey responded that 
this was a matter he would refer to the Executive Committee for 
consideration, and Trustee Savini concurred. 

Trustee Abrams asked that a progress report be made at 
an early meeting concerning the admission of minority students to 
the Medical School.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board 
was convened by Acting Chairman Croce at 2:15 p.m. 

The Minutes of the previous meeting were presented for 
approval. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Minutes of the meeting of 
August 7, 1974. 

At the Acting Chairman's request, President Wood spoke 
to the Board, making specific reference to the relationship 
between the University and the need for public understanding of 
the continuing requirements of public higher education in the 
Commonwealth. In this connection, he commented on the importance 



r 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

of commitment to public higher education by candidates for state 
office in the forthcoming election. President Wood indicated that 
he was preparing a formal statement on this matter to be released 
on September 5, and that he would cause the statement to be 
attached to the minutes of the meeting. 

At the President's request, Chancellor Bromery reported 
briefly for UM/ Amherst. He said that campus student registration 
currently exceeded 23,000 persons, of whom 3,778 were entering 
freshmen. Chancellor Bromery commented that, for the first time, 
the numbers of male and female freshmen were approximately equal, 
reflecting in part the affirmative action efforts of the campus. 

Chancellor Golino reported that UM/Boston was registering 
2,700 new students during the current week. He said that applica- 
tions for admission to the campus for the fall term had been 
encouragingly high, as had been the acceptance rate on the part of 
students granted admission. He reported further that application 
numbers for January admission also are higher than expected. 

Chancellor Soutter spoke briefly of several matters, 
including the fact that the parking garage feasibility study is 
proceeding on schedule, and that student housing approved by the 
Board is ready for occupancy. 

Acting Chairman Croce next reported for the Executive 
Committee, recommending three actions for consideration by the 
Trustees. The first of these dealt with the alcoholic beverage 
policy proposed for UM/Boston, consistent with similar policy 
earlier approved by the Board for UM/ Amherst. Upon motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt and approve the policies and pro- 
cedures relative to the possesion, consumption 
and sale of alcoholic beverages at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Boston, as set forth 
in Document T75-015A. 

Acting Chairman Croce next reported the Executive Commit- 
tee's recommendation for approval of steps which would lead to an 
arrangement for the City of Boston and the School Department to 
utilize for a limited period certain University space at 100 
Arlington Street. President Wood commented in support of the 
recommendation, saying that he and Chancellor Golino have desired 
to be of assistance to Mayor White and the Boston Public Schools 
in practical ways, and that the proposed arrangement provided a 
concrete example of such assistance. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston, or his designee, to 
negotiate an agreement with the City of Boston,

or its designee, whereby for a period of time 
not extending beyond June 30, 1975, the sixth 
and seventh floors of the University's facility 
at 100 Arlington Street, Boston, may be occupied 
and utilized by Brighton High School for the 
education of approximately five hundred students 
in return for a contribution to the costs of 
maintaining said facility. Further, that the 
Treasurer of the University, after consultation 
with the President, be empowered and authorized 
to execute an agreement on behalf of the 
University upon successful completion of said 
negotiations. 

Acting Chairman Croce reported the recommendation of the 
Executive Committee that Miss Dorothy Eichel be appointed 
Assistant Secretary. President Wood commented on the very high 
quality of Miss Eichel 's work during the past year in the Office 
of the Secretary, and said that her election to the position would 
recognize this performance and strengthen the Office as it moves 
into a new phase. The President reported that Franklin Patterson, 
the incumbent Secretary, had asked to be relieved of duties of the 
Office and allowed to return to his academic work as Frank L. 
Boyden Professor of the University. The President noted that the 
Trustees had among the materials of the meeting his report on the 
progress of the Boyden Professorship of the University and the 
nature of the future assignments that Professor Patterson would 
carry both University-wide and in connection with UM/Boston. 
Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To elect Dorothy Eichel to the position of 

Assistant Secretary to the Board of Trustees. 

At Acting Chairman Croce' s request, Trustee Troy then 
reported for the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. 
Trustee Troy said that the first item of business of the Committee 
at its meeting on August 27, 1974, had been to consider an important 
appointment at UM/ Amherst, that of Dr. George S. Odiorne as Pro- 
fessor of Management with tenure and as Dean of the School of 
Business Administration. He said that the School of Business Admin- 
istration had established a search committee from the various 
departments of the School, also including two faculty members from 
outside of the School. After a national search, the Committee 
voted unanimously to recommend Dr. Odiorne for the Deanship. 
Chancellor Bromery, Dr. Bischoff, President Wood, Vice President 
Lynton, and several Trustees also met and talked with the candidate, 
Trustee Troy noted. Vice Chancellor Gluckstern, at Trustee Troy's 
request, briefly reviewed Dr. Odiorne 's education and experience 
and indicated his judgment that the appointment was desirable. 
Vice President Lynton added that he had been impressed by Dr. 
Odiorne' s energies and potential impact on the School; Chancellor 
Bromery agreed, and said that he expected to establish an advisory

committee to work closely with Dr. Odiorne. Trustee Troy commented 
that the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy recommended 
adoption of two votes in this matter. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 



VOTED : 



and further 



VOTED : 



To concur in the appointment by the President 
of Dr. George S. Odiorne as Professor of 
Management with tenure at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst. 



To concur in the appointment by the Chancellor 
of Dr. Odiorne as Dean of the School of Business 
Administration at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Amherst. 



Trustee Troy reported further that the Committee had 
discussed a proposal to initiate planning for College IV at 
UM/Boston and considered a report by Dean Freeland of that College. 
He said that approximately two years earlier a planning committee 
had been established at UM/Boston to develop recommendations with 
regard to the nature and composition of College IV. Trustee Troy 
observed that the Committee had been composed of faculty drawn 
from a wide range of disciplines, as well as from administration 
of the campus and from the Office of the President . He noted that 
the planning committee had recommended that College IV be called 
the College of Professional Studies, and that it be made up of 
several units. Trustee Troy recalled that, as Chairman of the 
Trustee Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy, he had 
attended one of the final planning committee meetings and had 
since discussed various proposals with Chancellor Golino, Dr. 
Spaethling, Dean Freeland, and others. 

He said that Dean Freeland — in connection with the pro- 
posed Plan of Development (Doc. T75-027) before the Board — had 
accomplished careful study of the relation between certain pro- 
fessional programs and the job market, as well as consulting with 
people who are knowledgeable in the pertinent areas in both the 
academic and business worlds. Trustee Troy commented that, while 
the full range of disciplines to be offered in the future has not 
been decided upon or even tentatively brought before the Committee 
on Faculty and Educational Policy, Dean Freeland, the Chancellor, 
and others concerned wish to move forward in College IV 's first 
year on one front: the establishment of a Program in Management. 
When other programs have been fully explored they will be brought 
before the Committee for discussion at a later time. For the 
present meeting, Trustee Troy said that his Committee wished to 
focus only upon the Program in Management and to recommend approval 
of the proposal developed by Dean Freeland. Dean Freeland requests 
Trustee endorsement in order to proceed with planning of the

Program during the present academic year, with the assistance of 
three or four staff persons still to be appointed. This would 
enable completion of the planning process, definition of the 
curriculum, and necessary appointments, so that College IV would be 
ready to accept students in the fall of 1975. Trustee Troy added 
that if and when decisions are made on additional programs for 
College IV, such as architecture or engineering, it would be 
necessary to involve the Long-Range Planning Committee and the 
Buildings and Grounds Committee in discussion early in the game. 
He said that, insofar as is known at this point, some of the enter- 
ing students in 1975 will be freshmen, others will be transfers at 
the junior-year level. Trustee Troy observed that Dean Freeland 
hopes to draw upon the faculties of Colleges I and II to contribute 
to the liberal arts component of College IV during the beginning 
years. He noted Dean Freeland 's hope that College IV would not be 
an isolated unit, but that its students as well as those from the 
other colleges will move freely among the departments and schools 
of the University as a whole. He said that College IV from the 
beginning will be located at the Harbor Campus, and that Chancellor 
Golino strongly favors this location. 

At Trustee Troy's request, Dean Freeland in brief comment 
spoke of the definition of management utilized in the Planning 
Proposal and of the initiative in interinstitutional cooperation 
that had been emphasized from the beginning of the planning of 
College IV. He responded to questions from several Trustees about 
substantive aspects of the proposed program. President Wood 
observed that the origins of College IV occurred in close cooperation 
with the Office of the President and preceded restructuring of 
Trustee Committees under the Governance Document and the revised 
Bylaws. He regretted that a lack of sequence and consultation with 
the Committee on Long-Range Planning, the Buildings and Grounds 
Committee, and with UM/ Amherst had resulted, and said that further 
planning of College IV would be done in cooperation with these 
elements of the Board and with UM/ Amherst and Dean Odiorne. 

Trustee Carlson commented that he was glad to hear the 
President say that, because he wished to object to the timing and 
procedure involved in presentation of the present proposal for 
College IV. He said that he took strong exception to these aspects 
of the matter, not to the substance of the proposal itself. 
Trustee Carlson observed that he shared or agreed with Dean Free- 
land's substantive essentials but objected as a member of the Com- 
mittee on Long-Range Planning to lack of discussion of the mission 
of College IV and of UM/Boston as a whole by his Committee. While 
he had received the proposal document only a week prior to the 
Board meeting, he felt that the Long-Range Planning Committee 
should have had six weeks or more to consider the matter rather 
than having it fixed immutably without; such consultation. Presiden 
Wood said that the proposed plan for the first program of College 
IV would not be fixed immutably and assured Trustee Rowland and 
Trustee Carlson that the Long-Range Planning Committee in the 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

future would have opportunities for consultation about College IV 
plans. Trustee Troy said that the discussion raised a question 
about the function and jurisdiction of Committees of the Board 
which required clarification, and that he felt that the College IV 
proposal was for an academic program and properly fell to the 
Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy for consideration. 
Trustee Carlson acknowledged that the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy had a basic responsibility, but expressed his 
belief that submission of the proposal should have been to more 
than one Committee. Acting Chairman Croce agreed that functions 
of Trustee Committees need further clarification and definition, 
but suggested that it would be proper to put the present proposal 
to a vote. Upon motion made and seconded, with Trustees Rowland 
and Carlson abstaining, it was 

VOTED : To endorse the planning of a Program in 

Management as a first step in the develop- 
ment of College IV, UM/Boston Harbor Campus. 

Acting Chairman Croce recognized President Wood to 
report for the Committee on Buildings and Grounds which had met 
on August 28, 1974. The President said that he had acted as 
Chairman at that meeting in the absence of Trustee Knowles, and 
had discussed with the Committee the presentation of the capital 
budget this year in conjunction with the operating budget. He 
observed that this will require a common calendar of development 
and a joint effort by the Buildings and Grounds and Budget Commit- 
tees of the Board as well as the Multi-Campus Planning and Budget 
Committees. The President observed that, with the assistance of 
Dean Stockwell and Vice President Robinson, the Committee was 
brought up-to-date on progress at the Worcester campus. Working 
drawings are being prepared for the first phase of site development 
including necessary roads and parking around the Medical School 
buildings and at the emergency and outpatient entrances to the 
hospital. At the August 28 meeting, Planning Director Littlefield 
reported on the status of the Fine Arts Center and building 
renovations at the Amherst campus. 

President Wood reported that the main business before 
the Committee had been the review of an amended building program 
for the gymnasium at the Harbor Campus. He said that the full 
Board had received a summary of the program indicating changes from 
the original design and identifying key cost savings that will 
permit the University to retain almost all of the activity space 
while substantially reducing the budget to correspond to the 
additional capital outlay appropriation voted in July. The Presi- 
dent said that the most important change in terms of both cost and 
design is the elimination of the two floors of parking in the 
building. In addition, spectator capacity has been reduced in the 
hockey and swimming areas and space devoted to lockers has been 
cut. The running track also was omitted in the amended program. 
President Wood commented that the amended program is the work of a

small internal task force that he and Chancellor Golino had 
established during the summer. He commented that the task force 
had done a careful, responsible job of identifying options avail- 
able under the new budget, and that he and the Chancellor had made 
the final decisions with regard to space and dollar allocations to 
be recommended. He said the Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
voted to recommend approval of the amended program, and upon motion 
made and seconded , it was 

VOTED : To approve the amended program for Building 120 
(Physical Education) as outlined in Trustee 
Document T75-025. 

President Wood further reported that UM/Boston had asked 
the Committee's approval for drawings of a dock to be used for both 
the Biology Department's harbor and off-shore island studies and 
recreational sailing. He said that the money for the dock — approx- 
imately $30,000 — would come from Phase I funds. The Committee 
voted to recommend approval by the Board. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was

construction as proposed in Trustee Document

all in accordance with accounting policy and 
procedures issued by the Treasurer of the 
University. 

With these votes presented and approved, Trustee Pumphret concluded 
the report of the Committee on Finance. 

Acting Chairman Croce next asked Trustee Pumphret to 
report for the Committee on the Budget. Trustee Pumphret reported 
that the Budget Committee had met on August 19, 1974. He said 
the Trustees would recall that in October, 1973, they had approved 
a Maintenance Budget (State Funds) for fiscal year 1975. He said 
that the Trustees had requested appropriations totalling $99.9 
million, an increase of $12.7 million from the appropriation 
anticipated through fiscal year 1974. This figure did not include 
funds for the Teaching Hospital. Trustee Pumphret noted that a 
supplemental budget of $3,700,000 to provide funds for the opening 
of the Teaching Hospital had been approved at the May 1974 Trustee 
meeting. 

After Trustee approval and consideration by the Executive 
and Legislative branches of the state government, Trustee Pumphret 
noted that the state direct^appropriated funds totaled at $97.4 
million. He said that the Trustees needed at the present meeting 
to consider the operating budget for fiscal year 1975 (Doc. T75- 
017A) which revises the original requests approved by the Trustees 
in October 1973 to conform with the funds actually approved by the 
Legislature. He said that the operating budget totals $154.4 
million; 61.3% of this total represents direct appropriated funds 
approved by the Legislature; 5.5% represents anticipated requests 
to be sought in the Legislature during fiscal year 1975; and 33.2% 
represents nonstate funds. 

Trustee Pumphret then addressed himself to the State 
Funds portion of the budget. He said the Trustees should bear in 
mind that the budget is devoted to the allocation of funds now 
available and is not concerned with fiscal year 1976 or inequities 
or insufficiencies in the current budget. These problems, he said, 
will be dealt with through other channels. 

Trustee Pumphret began with a comparison of the requests 
approved in October 1973 and the actual funds approved by the 
Legislature:

In connection with UM/ Amherst , Trustee Pumphret said 
that the State appropriation of $66,428,417 is an increase of 
$3,354,265 over fiscal year 1974. This authorized the following 
new positions: 27 faculty, 10 professional, 9 technical, and 
4 clerical. Trustee Pumphret said that the campus at Amherst 
had redistributed some of the appropriation by the following 
recommended transfers:

Trustee Pumphret commented that this series of transfers involved 
$334,000 or approximately % of 1% of the total state appropria- 
tion for UM/ Amherst. The planned enrollment at the campus is 
23,600, he noted, with a total of 3,732 positions. Trustee Pumphret 
said that the cost-of-living salary adjustment for the campus will 
require approximately $3,000,000, and funds will be requested for 
this from the State Salary Reserve Fund. He said that skyrocket- 
ing utility costs have had a severe impact on all campuses and 
that he would mention these later. 

In connection with UM/Boston, Trustee Pumphret noted 
that the State appropriation of $17,900,000 was an increase of 
$2.7 million over fiscal year 1974. New positions authorized 
included 20 new faculty and 12 new campus police positions. Trustee 
Pumphret commented that there is one Fund Transfer proposed by

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

UM/Boston at this time: $45,000 from Equipment to Printing. He 
said that the cost-of-living adjustment for UM/Boston is estimated 
at $690,000 and will be requested from the State Salary Reserve 
Fund. The planned enrollment for the campus is 6,100 full-time 
students — an increase of 500 — with a total of 1,000 positions. He 
observed that enrollment of Colleges I and II is entering a 
leveling off period, and that College III will expand. 

With regard to UM/Worcester , Trustee Pumphret observed 
that rapid expansion of the Medical School and the uncertainties 
of equipping and staffing of the Teaching Hospital make review 
of the Worcester operating budget difficult. He said that the 
maintenance budget for the Medical School requested appropriations 
of $7,900,000. A supplemental budget request of $3,700,000 for 
equipping, staffing, and opening the Teaching Hospital was approved 
by the Trustees. The Legislature, he noted, appropriated 
$6,965,620 for the Medical School, earmarking $618,000 for the 
affiliated hospital. Trustee Pumphret said that it is obvious 
that the present appropriation is insufficient to permit the opening; 
of the hospital, and that he must rely on the Chancellor and the 
President to tell the Trustees how to proceed in view of this fact 

In further comment, Trustee Pumphret said that while the 
Worcester program statement is confusing since it is not confined 
to details of the operating budget, he would attempt to analyze 
the Worcester figures on the same basis as the presentation for 
UM/Amherst and UM/Boston. Trustee Pumphret commented that the stats; 
appropriation of $6,965,620 for the Medical School compares with 
$5,475,239 for fiscal year 1974, but that as he interprets it, 
$618,000 of this sum is restricted for the affiliated Teaching 
Hospital. He said that at UM/Worcester 223 new positions were 
authorized: 52 faculty; 25 positions for present and continuing 
functions; 28 unallocated at this time; and 118 patient care 
positions. Trustee Pumphret noted that this would bring the 
number of authorized positions at UM/Worcester to 482. These 
positions, he said, are subject to the following restrictions: 
"For the personal services and expenses of the Medical School, 
including the affiliated Teaching Hospital and not more than 482 
permanent positions provided that not less than 118 permanent 
positions and $618,000 shall be used for the appropriation of the 
Hospital." 

Trustee Pumphret observed that UM/Worcester recommends 
at present the following transfer of funds.

Trustee Pumphret commented that proposed transfers totaled 
$1,006,070 or 14.4% of the entire appropriation from the state. 
He said that the cost-of-living adjustment at UM/Worcester would 
amount to $185,538 and would be requested from the Salary Reserve 
Fund. Planned enrollment, including 64 freshmen to be admitted 
in the fall of 1974, would produce 152 students with a total of 
482 positions. Trustee Pumphret said that during his review of 
the UM/Worcester presentation he was curious about several items 
and would seek answers at the next Budget Committee meeting. 
These items he noted as follows: 

1. Page Wl states that the appropriation for FY 75 is 
$1,900,000 more than FY 74. Page W6 uses a figure of 
$5,475,000 as the fiscal 1974 expenditures or $1,490,000 
less than the FY 1975 appropriation. 

2. The description of new authorized positions, is too 
unspecific: 25 positions for "present and continuing 
functions" and 28 "unallocated at the present time" 
should be more specific so that appropriate 01 money can 
be budgeted. 

3. The utility allocation is confusing; Page W2 states 
"subsidiary account 08 is understated in terms of FY 75 
need as requested by the University, demonstrating the 
need for $570,000 in supplementary funds, mainly to 
meet the needs for heating fuel and other utilities in 
the Teaching Hospital." But Page W4, Physical Plant 
Operations, paragraph 2 states "there is a large 
potential shortage in the utility account 08 in the 
months ahead. The Governor's recommendation provides 
only $683,000 in this account and the need, for the 
School alone, is estimated at $1,253,000. An additional 
$400,000 will be needed for the Teaching Hospital, with 
a total need of $1,653,000." However, Page W6, State 
Funds by Subsidiary Account, shows the following:

Trustee Pumphret observed that a footnote to the total 
above indicated that $400,000 is roughly estimated for 
heating oil and other utilities to support the Teaching 
Hospital. 

4. On Page W13, Personnel Position Summary by Program 
Area — Patient Care shows a total of 131 positions. 
Pages W16-19 distribute 118 positions for Patient Care, 
the first employees to be employed in December, 1974, 
with increments continuing through the balance of 
fiscal year 1975, and with 8 employees still to be hired 
in the next fiscal year beginning in July 1975. Mr. 
Pumphret said that he must ask first whether the Univer- 
sity can defer employing in 8 out of 118 authorized 
positions until the next fiscal year, and second, 
whether it is possible to reconcile the footnote on 
Page Wl ("the word patient care should be used, not 
Teaching Hospital, since many services in the Hospital 
will serve the needs of all functions in the entire 
medical center") with the restrictions imposed by the 
Legislature which read in part "provided that not less 
than 118 permanent positions and $618,000 shall be used 
for the appropriation of the hospital." 

5. Trustee Pumphret observed that on Page W10 Item 4 
$57,387 in 01 funds is apparently set aside to hold for 
future allocation to 32 positions, an average of $1,790 
per position in terms of annual salary. This item has 

a footnote indicating that "change in start-up is constant 
therefore, these positions will be allocated among the 
needs which will greatly exceed the minimal resources 
at an appropriate time estimated to be January 1975." 
Trustee Pumphret further asked how the University could 
justify transferring a net sum of $316,370 from the 01 
Salary Account. 

Trustee Pumphret then turned to a final item: utilities. 
He said that a review of the utilities costs at the campuses 
illustrates the energy crisis confronting the nation. He reviewed 
the utilities situation and prospects at each of the three campuses 
of the University as follows: 

1 . UM/ Amherst . 

The 08 Account over three fiscal years appears thus: 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



1973 $2,613,781. 

1974 3,350,967. 

1975 3,340,000. allocation 

"The utilities expense will be significantly higher than 
present budget levels because of extensive price-level 
increases in coal and fuel oil, resulting in a deficit 
of approximately $3,000,000 in the fiscal year." 
Trustee Pumphret said that this forecast apparently 
indicated that UM/ Amherst expected to make a supplemental 
request of $3 million. 

2. UM/Boston. 

The 08 Account has been: 



385? 



9-4-74 



1974 
1975 



$1,180,000. 
1,480,000. allocation 



Trustee Pumphret said that the Boston story is that since 
the time the fiscal year 1975 budget request was sub- 
mitted, the fuel adjustments surcharge has continued to 
rise to a point where the surcharge is greater than the 
basic energy cost. The summary carries an anticipated 
deficiency item in this case of $900,000. 

3. UM/Worcester . 



The 08 Account: 

1974 
1975 



$ 900,000. 

683,000. allocation 



The summary of State Funds Subsidiary Account carries an 
anticipated deficiency item in this case of $570,000, 
which indicates that the total need at UM/Worcester 
will be in the neighborhood of $1,253,000. 

With this Trustee Pumphret concluded the report of the 
Committee on the Budget and indicated his Committee's recommenda- 
tion that the Budget be approved. Upon motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : To approve the University of Massachusetts 
Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 1975 as 
detailed in Document T75-017A. 

After the vote President Wood observed that the Operating 
Budget represents a first cut at adjustment to legislative appro- 
priations. He said that there is a grave risk involved on major 
account transfers and retransfers, and that these must be undertaken

only with great care and thought. The President said that he and 
Chancellor Soutter must clarify the UM/Worcester budget and return 
to the Budget Committee with responses to the questions raised by 
Trustee Pumphret. President Wood further commented that the vote 
was taken with the understanding that the present document is not 
a final version for the fiscal year. In answer to a question from 
Trustee Troy about when the Teaching Hospital might become more or 
less self-sufficient, Chancellor Soutter said that much will depend 
on the form that possible national health insurance takes. Miss 
Flannery asked how it was possible to act upon the Medical School 
budget except in review by the Long-Range Planning Committee and 
in the context of the total picture of University needs and 
resources. Chancellor Soutter said that the whole Board of 
Trustees had an opportunity to consider the Budget over a long 
period of time; Trustee Carlson agreed that it would be desirable 
to have a consolidated picture within which to view Medical School 
expenditures. 

Acting Chairman Croce invited Trustee Shaler to report 
for the Committee on Student Affairs; the latter summarized dis- 
cussion at the Committee's meeting of August 20, 1974. This had 
dealt with the subject of Tuition Waivers for Residence Hall 
Counselors (Doc. T75-016) , with the matter of UM/Boston Alcoholic 
Beverages Policy (Doc. T75-015A) , on both of which matters the 
Committee had recommended the favorable action taken by the Board 
earlier in the present meeting. Trustee Shaler reported also that 
the Committee had a substantial discussion of the proposal for an 
Early Admissions Program at UM/ Amherst, and that after further 
study of the matter, the Committee would make a recommendation on 
this subject to the Board of Trustees. The Committee also had 
considered possibilities for a Student-Trustee Conference on 
student activities and life at the Amherst campus. Several 
alternatives in this regard were discussed, and Trustee Shaler 
said that he and Trustee Savini would further discuss the possibil- 
ity of improved on-campus communication between Trustees and 
students . 

Under the agenda item for Communications and Petitions, 
Acting Chairman Croce recognized Mr. Vincent Terrell of Boston, 
who had spoken at the August meeting of the Board, alleging racial 
discrimination in his not being rehired in the UM/Boston Theatre 
Arts program. Acting Chairman Croce pointed out that Mr. Terrell 
had not made a formal petition to the Board to be recognized on 
either occasion, but that he would be allowed to speak again on 
this occasion. Mr. Terrell repeated briefly his allegations and 
submitted documents to the Secretary which he said supported them. 
Chancellor Golino commented that, since Mr. Terrell is no longer 
an employee of the University, the procedure described in the 
Bylaws for consideration of a petition to be heard by the Board 
did not apply in Mr. Terrell's case. Mr. Terrell indicated that 
he would seek to come before the Board at other meetings to press 
his allegations.

Acting Chairman Croce then recognized Mr. George Haddad 
of Worcester, who spoke of alleged difficulties his son had 
experienced in attempting to enroll as a graduate student at UM/ 
Amherst. The Acting Chairman replied to Mr. Haddad, saying that 
his views should be expressed directly to the Chancellor; 
Chancellor Bromery indicated that he would secure satisfactory 
replies to the questions and criticisms raised by Mr. Haddad.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At the Chairman's request, President Wood commented on 
activities of the University and several items to come before the 
Board. The President began by referring to his Memorandum of 
September 27 to the Board of Trustees, outlining the procedure he 
had used in seeking a successor to Franklin Patterson as Secretary 
of the University and his decision to recommend formally the 
election of Mrs. Gladys Keith Hardy to this position. He commented 
on the University's good fortune in being able to secure Mrs. Hardy 
as Secretary of the University, mentioning features in her distin- 
guished career nationally and in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 
He spoke particularly of her expertness in and familiarity with 
higher education both public and private, of her experiences as 
Undersecretary of Educational Affairs for the Commonwealth, and 
more recently as Executive Director of the Public/Private Forum, 
a cooperative body in Massachusetts higher education. The Presi- 
dent stated that he believed Mrs. Hardy's background, experience, 
and understanding of public higher education admirably equips her 
for the post of Secretary, and upon motion made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : To elect Gladys Keith Hardy Secretary of the 

Board of Trustees and to appoint her Secretary 
of the University, said election and appoint- 
ment to become effective on November 1, 1974. 

Chairman Healey expressed the Board's pleasure at Mrs. Hardy's 
election and its appreciation to Professor Patterson for his term 
of service as Secretary. 

President Wood welcomed Mr. James Lindsey, President of 
the Graduate Student Senate, UM/Amherst , who, upon the recommenda- 
tion of Trustee Savini and with concurrence of the Executive Commit- 
tee, has been invited to represent graduate students to the Board 
of Trustees during the current year. 

President Wood called the Board's attention to Memorandum 



3861 



of Understanding (Doc. T75-014A) , noted the Board's approval of an 
earlier version of this document, indicated a change in Item 7 
of the earlier document requested by the Secretary of Educational 
Affairs, and asked for Trustee approval of the document as amended. 
Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Memorandum of Understanding 

(Doc. T75-014A) as requested by the President. 

The President spoke of general features of the Maintenance 
Budget Request FY 1976 (Doc. T75-033) , which was to be presented 
later in the meeting by Trustee Pumphret. The President noted 
that the request amounts to a total of over $118,000,000, a 16.5 
percent increase over anticipated FY 1975 expenditures. He 
commented that nearly half of the requested increase in funding is 
needed to keep up with cost increases associated with inflation,

and that these pressures had contributed to a decision to request 
no additional budgeted enrollment and faculty for academic programs 
except those of Colleges III and IV at UM/Boston. President Wood 
said that a separate budget was required for the new Teaching 
Hospital, for which the Trustees would be asked to establish a 
ceiling at today's meeting, with itemization to follow at the 
November meeting of the Board. The President said that any new 
programs in the coming fiscal year would require reallocation of 
resources in existing programs. He observed that the FY 1976 Main- 
tenance Budget Request had been achieved without a presidential 
ceiling, but by a participatory process in which the campuses had 
helped to reduce proposals from an initial proposal of $137,000,000 
to the present $118,000,000. 

At the President's request, Chancellor Soutter reported 
that construction of the Teaching Hospital is proceeding on 
schedule, as is recruitment of staff for that facility. He said 
that he expected difficulty in securing necessary equipment in 
time for the firmly scheduled July 1, 1975, opening of the Teaching 
Hospital. President Wood interjected that the Executive Committee 
had authorized actions by him to ensure that the opening date for 
the Teaching Hospital will be met. 

Chairman Healey, noting that the Executive Committee had 
no recommendations to present to the Board, asked Trustee Troy to 
report for the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. 
Trustee Troy said that at the Committee's meeting of September 24, 
discussion had centered largely on two new proposed graduate pro- 
grams — Master of Science degrees — one in Manufacturing Engineering 
and the other in Hotel, Restaurant, and Travel Administration at 
UM/ Amherst. The Trustees, he noted, have maintained a moratorium 
for some time on all new graduate programs. The moratorium has 
existed, he said, because of a need to pause to evaluate the 
University's position after the rapid period of graduate expansion 
in recent years, and because of the facts that the University is 
approaching peak growth at the Amherst campus in both undergraduate 
and graduate enrollments, that financial resources are tight, and 
that there is continued need to reevaluate graduate offerings in 
terms of social and individual needs and career opportunities, as 
well as to avoid unnecessary duplication within the University or 
in relation to other institutions. 



Trustee Troy said that the Amherst campus still has an 
ongoing review of graduate programs which should establish compar- 
ative criteria, especially as related to priorities, and guidelines 
that should be helpful in shaping a long-term plan which will serve 
to provide intelligent perspectives in evaluating individual 
proposals. As to the two proposals brought before the Committee, 
Trustee Troy said they had been under discussion for several years, 
and that they did not demand significant new costs in terms of 
either personnel or material resources. In the Engineering pro- 
posal, the essentials of the program already have been taught for 



3863 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS

some years, though in two separate departments and so without the 
efficiency which the new unified program could supply. All in 
all, Trustee Troy said, it seemed to the Committee — as it did to 
President Wood and Vice President Lynton — that both of these new 
degree offerings were justified in terms of the University's 
interests. Trustee Troy commented that the degree in Manufacturing 
Engineering fuses elements of both Mechanical and Industrial 
Engineering with special application to the needs of manufacturing. 
This type of program, he noted, has been widely employed in 
European countries for some years, and is now being recognized by 
manufacturers in this country as being of great value to industry. 
It is expected, Trustee Troy said, that the program will attract 
approximately ten graduate students in the coming year, that no new 
faculty will be needed, and that the potential for jobs for 
graduates will be very good. Trustee Troy therefore presented his 
Committee's recommendation for approval of the program outlined in 
Master of Science Degree in Manufacturing Engineering, UM/ Amherst 
(Doc. T75-029) , and upon motion made and seconded, it was 



UM/Amherst —

Science Degree

(Doc. T75-029) 



VOTED : To approve the graduate program leading to a 
Master of Science Degree in Manufacturing 
Engineering, as outlined in Trustee Document 
T75-029, and submit said proposal to the Board 
of Higher Education for its review and 
approval, to be implemented in September, 1975. 



Trustee Troy further commented that the proposed Master 
of Science Degree in Hotel, Restaurant, and Travel Administration - 
UM/ Amherst (Doc. T75-030) also offers career opportunities for 
graduate students, and according to Prof. Fletcher fills a real 
need in staffing managerial positions in what is called the 
hospitality industry. This program, Trustee Troy commented, will 
be taught by faculty of the School of Business Administration and 
the Department of Hotel, Restaurant, and Travel Administration. 
As proposed, the program would be limited to approximately 15 
graduate students. Upon motion made and seconded, it was

Trustee Troy said that the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy had discussed Graduation Lists - September 1 , 
1974 (Doc. T75-032) including degrees offered to undergraduate, 
graduate, and continuing education students, and recommended these

and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve and ratify the Graduation Lists of

the University Recorder and contained in

At Trustee Troy's request, President Wood spoke briefly 
of his most recent meeting with other New England Land-Grant 
University Presidents, reporting progress in the correlation of 
graduate programs within the region, in considering optimum ways 
to meet needs for veterinary education, and in achieving regional 
coordination in a variety of other fields. Trustee Troy ended 
his report by saying that his Committee had asked the campuses of 
the University to report at the next meeting on their progress in 
responding to new policy with regard to faculty contact hours. 

Chairman Healey then asked Trustee Pumphret to report for 
the Committee on the Budget. Trustee Pumphret noted that the 
Budget Committee had met on September 21 to review- the Maintenance 
Budget Request for FY 1976. He said that the document before the 
Trustees at the current meeting, Maintenance Budget Request FY 1976 
(Doc. T75-033) , reflected the efforts of many individuals on the 
various campuses and in the University's central administrative 
office. The projections put together during the past few months, 
he said, provide estimates of the money necessary to operate from 
July 1, 1975, to June 30, 1976. In the light of existing financial 
conditions, Trustee Pumphret said, this takes a great deal of 
doing. He noted that the 1976 requests total $118,310,834, and 
that this compares with $101,415,861 of estimated expenditures for 
fiscal year 1975. Trustee Pumphret broke this comparison down

Trustee Pumphret emphasized the impact of inflation on the total 
budget, and the particular impact of drastic increases in fuel 
prices. 

The FY 1976 budget proposal, Trustee Pumphret observed, 
does not include the Teaching Hospital at UM/Worcester . The formal 
budget submission date set by the Executive Office of Administration 
and Finance, he observed, is October 15, 1974. He said that the 
University plans to submit a budget request for the Teaching 
Hospital by that date, authorizing a ceiling of $9,175,000, subject 
to detailed review of expenditure and revenue projections, and the 
submission of the detailed Teaching Hospital maintenance budget 
request to the November meeting of the Board of Trustees. He 
summarized his Committee's report by stating its recommendation 
that the FY 1976 Maintenance Budget Request be approved, along 
with a separate vote with regard to the Teaching Hospital budget, 
UM/Worcester . 

Ms. Flannery then asked if it would be possible to table 
the part of the budget relating to the Medical School and consider 
that with the Teaching Hospital budget at the November meeting. 
While she agreed with Dr. Wood that there should be separate 
account structures for the Teaching Hospital and Medical School, 
she expressed her concern that the two budgets should be considered 
together as a package. In the ensuing discussion, Dr. Wood, 
Chairman Healey, and Trustee Pumphret pointed to the need to 
submit the budgets by the October 15 submission deadline, the 
importance of considering the Medical School budget with budgets 
for the other educational activities of the University, and the 
fact that the Teaching Hospital budget request will be reviewed 
in detail at the November meeting. Trustee Chandler noted 
further that the University budgets, like others in the Common- 
wealth, would be subject to the open hearing process and therefore 
fully open to review and question over time. Ms. Flannery said 
that Commissioner Bicknell's office had received the budget two 
days previously and that he felt he could not comment well and 
responsibly as a Trustee without more time and without the whole 
package for the Medical School and the Teaching Hospital to

consider simultaneously. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Maintenance Budget Request 
for FY 1976 set forth in Trustee Document 
T75-033. 

Ms. Flannery voted against the motion and said that she wished to 
be recorded as not against ■ it in substance but in terms of the 
budget process at issue. 

On his Committee's second recommendation, Trustee 
Pumphret said that it is appropriate because the formal budget 
submission date set by the Executive Office of Administration and 
Finance is October 15, 1974, and that formal approval of a Teaching 
Hospital budget must await a comprehensive review of hospital 
expenditure and revenue projections, which will take place at the 
November Trustee meeting. Upon motion made and seconded, and 
with Ms. Flannery abstaining, it was 

VOTED : To authorize a ceiling of $9,175,000 for the 
Teaching Hospital budget for FY 1976 subject 
to detailed review of expenditure and revenue 
projections and pending approval of the 
actual Teaching Hospital maintenance budget 
request at the November meeting of the Board 
of Trustees. In the interim, the President 
is authorized to enter into preliminary dis- 
cussions of the hospital maintenance budget 
request with appropriate agencies of the 
Commonwealth . 

Chairman Healey next invited Trustee Rowland to report 
for the Committee on Long-Range Planning; because of laryngitis, 
Trustee Rowland's remarks were read for her by Trustee Chandler. 
The Committee, it was reported, met on September 16 for the con- 
sideration of several matters. Plans for the first meeting of the 
Trustee Advisory Council on the Fine Arts were reported upon by 
Vice President Lynton. Trustee Rowland said that she had been 
glad to be able to attend the Friday session of this meeting which 
was held at Amherst on September 20 and 21. She had been partic- 
ularly pleased that Mr. Roche and Mr. Dinkeloo, architects of the 
Fine Arts Center, were able to attend and conduct a tour of the 
Center for the Council members. The Council membership, she said, 
is very impressive, and can make a considerable contribution to 
the Board in advising Trustees on future directions in the Fine 
Arts for students of the University, and on the effective use 
of present and future arts facilities. 

At the September 16 meeting, the Committee's major 
business, other than developing a Committee agenda for the fall, 
had been a discussion of the report of the New Directions Committee 
of the Harbor Campus of the University of Massachusetts/Boston, 



r 



i 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

which was completed in July and forwarded to members of the Board. 

The Long-Range Planning Committee, it was reported, is 
particularly concerned with the relationship of the recommendations 
of this report to the enrollment policy and guidelines adopted by 
the Board of Trustees in June, 1974. There appears to be very 
substantial agreement between the Trustees' statement and the 
report's recommendations in this area except on the matter of the 
rate of growth. At the suggestion of Chancellor Golino, it is 
planned that the Long-Range Planning Committee will meet in 
November with representatives of the University Assembly and with 
representatives of the New Directions Committee. The Committee's 
September 16 meeting reviewed and clarified the difference between 
enrollment planning as a resource decision and University adminis- 
tration function, and admissions procedure and criteria in which 
the Admissions Office, faculty, and campus administration have 
primary responsibility. 

She reported that, responding to other recommendations in 
the New Directions report, several Trustees questioned the nature 
of the student support services and counseling that were proposed. 
The question was raised as to the present status of the recommenda- 
tions of the Gage Report which was formally adopted by the Board 
regarding the strengthening of student counseling at the campus. 
It was suggested that this matter be referred to the Student 
Affairs Committee. In this connection, Trustee Rowland said that 
with the consent of the Long-Range Planning Committee she would 
add an amendment to the minutes of the September 16 meeting in 
order to have this discussion more clearly on the record. This 
amendment would add to the second paragraph on page 3 of the 
September 16 minutes the sentence: "It was suggested that the 
Student Affairs Committee be asked to review the implementation 
of the Gage Report recommendations adopted by the Board in 1973." 

The Long-Range Planning Committee adopted a tentative 
agenda for the fall at its September 16 meeting, but had no actions 
it desired to bring to the Board for consideration at present. 

Trustee Troy inquired what the Long-Range Planning Com- 
mittee meant by "enrollment trends." Vice President Robinson 
replied, saying that this term, as it had been utilized in the 
Long-Range Planning Committee minutes of September 16, meant 
looking at numbers of high school graduates and their patterns of 
choice with regard to further education to help determine future 
enrollment plans for the University. Trustee Troy observed that 
some of the language utilized in the discussions of the Committee 
did not appear to him to be clear. 

Chairman Healey then recognized Trustee Knowles to 
report as the delegate to the Board of Higher Education. Trustee 
Knowles stated that the Board of Higher Education had met on

Friday, September 20, 1974. In addition to routine business and 
regular reports, plus a long and informative report from the 
Chancellor, discussions concerning the Collegiate Authority Committed 
were on the agenda. The Committee on the Public/Private Forum, 
to which Trustee Knowles had been appointed by Chairman Adam, pre- 
sented a nine-point program for the Board of Higher Education to 
consider. A copy of this report has been forwarded to the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. Trustee Knowles said that an election of 
officers was held, with Dr. Eugene P. Grillo , as environmental 
engineer and cytologist, being elected chairman; Dr. Gertrude 
Hunter, Coordinator of State Health Services and Mental Health 
Services, was elected vice chairman. Trustee Knowles reported no 
further actions by the Board of Higher Education. 

Chairman Healey recognized Trustee Steed who asked about 
the status of negotiations between the University and Local 576 
at UM/Boston. Chairman Healey replied that these negotiations 
remain at an administrative level, and that progress is expected 
at that level. Trustee Robertson asked whether the members of the 
Local who had been present at the beginning of the meeting could 
be so informed, and the Chairman replied in the affirmative. 

Trustee Robertson expressed strongly his view that 
meetings of Board Committees should be kept to a regularized 
schedule, as are meetings of the Board itself. He said that 
rescheduling of Committee meetings appeared to be done to meet the 
convenience of campus officials and staff and without due consider- 
ation of Trustee time constraints and other responsibilities. 
President Wood agreed that every effort should be made to adhere 
to a firm Committee schedule, even though the University's complex 
operations and timetable make this difficult. 



Chairman Healey recognized Mr. Vincent Terrell, who spoke 
briefly to the Trustees again concerning his allegations of dis- 
crimination on the part of the University in connection with non- 
renewal of his employment. Mr. Terrell presented Chairman Healey 
with further papers which he said documented his allegations. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Trustees, the meeting was adjourned at 3:20 p.m.

Maintenance Budget Request (Doc. T75-040) , he said that although the 
request had not been reviewed at the October meeting of the Board, 
it had been discussed at campus, committee, and Trustee levels 
since September. He said further that it had been subject to dis- 
cussion and review on at least eight occasions. 

The President also informed the Trustees that he had 
received, and wished thereby to acknowledge, a communication from 
the Amherst Student Government Association expressing certain con- 
cerns. He said he had asked Trustee Savini to insure, in his 
capacity as President of the Amherst Undergraduate Student Senate, 
that these matters be forwarded to the President's Office for con- 
sideration through proper campus channels. 

The President called on Chancellor Bromery to offer his 
remarks. Chancellor Bromery informed the Board of the death of 
Professor Joseph Burroughs. Professor Burroughs, he said, had been 
a member of the Amherst faculty for more than a decade. He was a 
graduate of the University of Virginia and had served as a member 
of the faculty of Cornell University. He had served and been 
involved in several activities including: the experimental educa- 
tion program Project Ten; the development of the University 
Governance Document; as Faculty Senate Delegate to the Board of 
Trustees; and as Chairman of the Amherst AAUP chapter. 

Chancellor Bromery described Professor Burroughs as an 
innovator, much concerned with the welfare of his students, and as 
an articulate speaker in any discussion of issues. He informed the 
Board that the Amherst Administration had agreed, at the initiation 
of members of the faculty, to establish a Joseph Burroughs Memorial 
Scholarship Fund. He said that contributions to this fund may be 
made in lieu of flowers. 

Trustee Shaler moved that the Board express its sor/row 
to Mrs. Burroughs over the death of Professor Burroughs. The 
motion having been made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the members of the Board of Trustees of 
the University of Massachusetts express their 
formal sorrow to Mrs. Burroughs over the death 
of their friend and colleague, Joseph Burroughs. 

Chancellor Golino indicated that he had no remarks to 
make to the Board, while Chancellor Soutter welcomed the Trustees 
to the Worcester Campus. 

Chairman Healey presented the recommendations of the 
Executive Committee. The Executive Committee wished to submit to 
the Board for its approval the Design for the University-wide 
Diploma as described in Doc. T75-043. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees adopt the University- 
wide Diploma design as detailed in Doc. T75-043 
with wording change to be determined forthwith 
by the President in consultation with Trustee 
Troy. 

The Executive Committee's second recommendation was that 
the Board agree to its list of honorary degrees to be awarded at 
the 1975 Amherst Commencement, and that it instruct Chancellor 
Bromery to proceed with the necessary arrangements. Upon motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees confirm as candidates 
for Honorary Degrees to be awarded at the UM/ 
Amherst 1975 Commencement those persons agreed 
upon in Executive Session of the Board of this 
date and instruct the Chancellor of the campus 
to proceed with necessary arrangements. 

At the request of the Chairman, Professor Troy presented 
the report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. 
At its October 21 meeting, the Committee had heard the Progress 
Report on Compliance with Enrollment-Contact Hours . Trustee Troy 
reviewed for the Board the history of this item, stating that the 
General Court had required the faculty to spend, in direct contact 
with students, a minimum of six hours in graduate programs and 
nine hours in undergraduate programs per week. 

A compliance report was called for by the Legislature — 
originally set for November 15 — but because it was difficult in so 
short a time to collect and assemble all the data as well as to 
clarify and refine definitions, it was necessary to ask for a 
short extension in time. He said the Committee will be presenting 
the final recommendations on this matter to the Board at the 
meeting on December 4. 

He reiterated the difficulty of settling upon definitions 
of equivalencies to contact hours, in view of the complexity and 
variety of faculty activities which are not carried out in the 
traditional setting. He mentioned, as examples: the nontraditional 
curriculum in use at UM/Boston's College III, as well as lengthy 
preparation of classroom presentations, publishing and research 
activities, and supervision of their preparation. 

He reported that a task force is at work gathering 
information to present to the Committee. He emphasized, in his 
remarks, the faculty's view that this request should be considered 
only a first step in a long-term process, to include faculty 
participation, of defining the nature and scope of academic work. 
He expressed his confidence that the requirements of the legislation 
would be satisfactorily met.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood added to Trustee Troy's remarks his serious 
reservations about the appropriateness and level of understanding 
exhibited by the legislation. He said the University would certainl 
comply with the requirements, but that the time constraints imposed 
would make such compliance difficult. 

Trustee Troy turned next to the proposed Change of Name 
in the Economics Department of College II at UM/Boston to the 
Department of Political Economy (Doc. T75-039) . He informed the 
Board that the College II Economics Department had gradually 
evolved from a theory-oriented department, similar to that of 
College I, to one emphasizing the relationship of economic theory 
to practical economic problems and their solutions. To bring the 
name into conformity with the actual nature of the department, and 
to help give students a broader choice of concentration, the 
Committee wished to recommend approval of the proposed change. 
The motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the name change of the Economics 
Department, College II, University of -Massa- 
chusetts at Boston, to the Department of 
Political Economy. 

Trustee Rowland was then called upon to present the report 
of the Committee on Long-Range Planning. The Long-Range Planning 
Committee had met on October 21, she said, and had discussed the 
capital outlay budget request of the Harbor Campus. The Committee 
had been particularly interested in relating physical developments 
at the campus to the development of programs, bearing in mind the 
enrollment guidelines adopted by the Board in June. 

Trustee Rowland outlined reports of capital outlay needs 
of the three campuses, and said that anticipated limitations of the 
Executive branch's capital outlay recommendations had prompted 
several Trustees to comment on the need for contingency plans in 
plotting the development of UM/Boston 's College IV. One contingency 
which should be borne in mind, she said, was that of more extensive 
use of the Downtown Center of UM/Boston at 100 Arlington Street. 

Further discussion of College IV had dealt with its 
development timetable and its special requirements. There had been 
some discussion at the meeting of the liberal arts component of 
the College, and it was indicated that this has not yet been fully 
determined. Trustee Rowland also reported discussion of the new 
management program within College IV. The Committee will continue 
to have discussions regarding College IV as the campus planning 
goes forward. 

Chairman Healey pointed out that the Long-Range Planning 
Committee is the arm of the Board of Trustees (which under the law 
is the sole statutory source for the decision-making process for 
the University) in its planning responsibilities. Although the 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Long-Range Planning Committee interacts with the Multi- 
campus Planning and Budget Committees as well as various campus 
committees, he said, the Board looks to its own Committee on Long- 
Range Planning for guidance in its future policy decisions on 
planning activities. 

Chairman Healey placed before the Board the recommendation 
of the Executive Committee that Trustee Knowles be designated 
Delegate to the Board of Higher Education. The motion was made 
and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the designation of 
Trustee Betty K. Knowles as Delegate to 
the Board of Higher Education. 

Trustee Knowles presented the report of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds. An informal meeting of the Committee had 
been held at her home on October 23, whereat general reports were 
heard (1) about problems relating to the traffic patterns at the 
Amherst campus (2) about building completion at the Harbor campus, 
and (3) about construction progress and equipment needs of the 
Teaching Hospital on the Worcester campus. She informed the Board 
that no votes had been taken. 

On the subject of building names, Trustee Knowles 
informed the Board that the policy on this subject would be 
developed and a charge sent to the Chancellors this month. 

In her capacity as Delegate to the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion, Trustee Knowles summarized votes taken at its regular meeting 
on October 18, 1974. One vote approved the report of the Board 
of its recommendations for budgets for itself and institutions of 
higher education to the Governor and the General Court. The 
Board's recommendation for the University's budget is $116 million. 

Trustee Knowles also described the BHE's very favorable 
response to Secretary Hardy's report on the history, aims, and 
purposes of the Public-Private Forum. 

Chairman Healey requested Trustee Pumphret to give the 
report of the Committee on the Budget. Trustee Pumphret first 
made reference to the Trust Fund Interest Request (Doc. T75-041) 
which asked that the Board transfer $135,000 from the Trustee 
Reserve Account, greatly expanded by the recent high interest rates, 
for three purposes: (1) $50,000 for the work of the University-wide 
Bicentennial Committee, both for its individual programs and for 
proposed fund-raising efforts to be conducted in concert with the 
Universities of Pennsylvania and Virginia; (2) $20,000 for the 
University's share of the expenses of the Cooperative Association 
of New England Land-Grant Universities, of which the University is 
a member; and (3) $65,000 to be applied, respectively, to reduction

of the Amherst garage's deficit and defrayment of costs associated 
with the work of the Visiting Committee on the Worcester campus. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer to transfer 

$135,000 from the Trustee Reserve to the 
Trust Fund Interest account for the purposes 
detailed in Trustee Document T75-041. 

The second item in Trustee Pumphret's report was the 
Maintenance Budget Request for the Teaching Hospital for Fiscal 
Year 1976 (Doc. T75-040) . Trustee Pumphret reminded the Board 
that, due to the impossibility of preparing a detailed budget 
request by the October 15 date set by the Executive Office of 
Administration and Finance, the Board had at its last meeting set 
a $9.2 million ceiling for the Teaching Hospital Maintenance 
Budget pending approval of the actual budget at the November meeting 
of the Board of Trustees. The budget request was now completed, 
he said. 

He summarized the budget request. The Teaching Hospital 
budget request for FY 1976 includes $7,787,974 and 545 new 
positions. Trustee Pumphret noted that this total is $1,412,000 
less than had been anticipated by earlier forecasts. The total for 
the Teaching Hospital, he said, is broken down into four categories: 
(1) Inpatient Services (2) Ambulatory Care (3) Medical Departments , 
and (4) Support Services . 

The Inpatient Services component would receive $2.5 
million and 184 new positions, or 31.8% of the total. The 
Ambulatory Care component would receive $600,000 and 50 new posi- 
tions, or 7.6% of the total. The Medical Departments component 
would receive $1.7 million and 154 new positions, or 21.3% of the 
total. Finally, the Support Services component would receive 
$3.1 million and 157 new positions, or 39.3% of the total. 

On the subject of rate schedules and anticipated 
revenues, Trustee Pumphret noted that the Medical School had 
retained an accounting firm, Arthur Young and Associates, to 
assist in developing a rate schedule formula. The rate schedule, 
he said, would come before the Board for its approval at the 
December meeting. 

Trustee Pumphret expressed his admiration of the budget 
request, saying that it reflects careful, detailed preparation 
by Chancellor Soutter and his staff, the President's staff, and 
many highly qualified consultants. 

Trustee Bicknell stated in the ensuing discussion that, 
although the budget request per se seemed reasonable — indeed, on 
the low side — he felt concerned about the format in which it had 
been presented to the Board. He expressed what he described as 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



his relative inability to appreciate fully the future year program 
impact of the decision about to be reached. He recommended that 
the Worcester campus develop an integrated program and budget 
format which would allow individual decisions to be evaluated 
within an overall policy framework. 

He said such a format would spell out the long-range 
plans of the hospital, might consider the hospital and Medical 
School to be conceptually aligned, and could relate all programs 
to sources of funds so that the Trustees could make a more informed 
decision about the direction being taken by the Medical School. 
Because he felt such a format essential to an informed decision, 
and not because of objections to the budget request per se, he 
indicated his intention to abstain from voting on the request. 

Trustee Shaler observed that a day-long meeting had been 
held at the Worcester campus in January which he had found 
valuable to his understanding of the budget request before the 
Committee, and he expressed his hope that more such meetings 
could be held in the future. 

At President Wood's request, Trustee Croce described an 
organizational consortium meeting held on October 30, 1974. 
Present at the meeting, at the suggestion of the Medical School 
Visiting Committee, were three representatives of Worcester commu- 
nity hospitals as well as representatives of the Teaching Hospital. 
At the meeting, said Trustee Croce, he had made a statement about 
the possible makeup of a consortium including these hospitals and 
the Teaching Hospital. The jurisdiction of such a consortium 
should not, he had stated, threaten the autonomy of any of the 
area community hospitals. 

There being no further discussion and a motion having 
been made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Teaching Hospital Maintenance 
Budget Request Fiscal Year 1976, Trustee 
Document T75-040. 

Trustee Bicknell is recorded as abstaining from the 
vote for the reasons previously stated. 

The Chairman called upon Trustee Pumphret to report for 
the Finance Committee in the absence of Trustee Gordon. The 
Finance Committee had met on October 22, said Trustee Pumphret, at 
which time the Endowment Fund Portfolio Analysis had been reviewed . 
Although no change in the portfolio was recommended, the investment 
counsel had proposed that the portion of the portfolio invested 
in equities continue at about two-thirds.

The Committee also heard the campuses' responses to the 
State Auditor's Reports for FY 1973 for the Boston, Amherst, and 
Worcester campuses. There had been no serious criticisms, and it 
was felt that the campuses' responses were adequate. 

The Committee had also heard a report from its insurance 
consultant, who described a proposed insurance package which would 
provide personal liability coverage, including malpractice. 
The Committee had urged its counsel to proceed as rapidly as 
possible with development of specifications of this coverage for 
review at the Committee's next meeting. 

Trustee Pumphret next mentioned the recommendation of the 
Committee that the Board vote to authorize Rental of Apartment 
Facilities in New York City as part of the UM/Amherst Outreach Pro- 
gram. The motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the University 

of Massachusetts at Amherst, or his designee, to 
negotiate a rental agreement for apartment 
facilities in New York City, said agreement 
not to exceed the present academic year ending 
May 31, 1975, for the purpose of housing approx- 
imately ten interns from the University who 
will be administrative interns. Further, that 
the Treasurer of the University in consultation 
with the President be empowered and authorized 
to execute a lease agreement for and in behalf 
of the University in furtherance of said purpose 
upon successful completion of said negotiations. 

Trustee Pumphret reviewed the two final recommendations 
of the Finance Committee: first, that the Trustees authorize the 
Invitation of Bids for the Location of a Branch Bank at UM/Amherst 
(Doc. T75-034) similar to one so authorized for the Harbor Campus, 
UM/Boston; second, that the Trustees vote to correct a typograph- 
ical error in Doc. T73-158 having to do with the Rental Rate at 
North Village Apartments, UM/Amherst . 

Trustee Savini placed a motion before the Board to delay 
consideration of the branch bank proposal until the December meet- 
ing of the Board because, he said, questions had arisen with the 
Amherst Student Government Association about whether a commercial 
bank on the campus would serve student interests. Trustee Pumphret 
said he had thought there was a great desire on the part of the 
Amherst students to have such a facility. He said further that 
he thought it would help relieve the bad check problem, and would 
generate income for the Campus Center. He also pointed out that 
the specifications of the bids received would have to be approved 
by the Trustees, the Treasurer, and the President before the bank 
branch would open. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chancellor Bromery indicated his agreement with this, and 
said he would willingly confer with Trustee Savini and other 
students in an effort to allay any concerns which had arisen. 
Trustee Savini agreed to this, and a motion therefore having been 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That in accordance with the provisions of 

Chapter 1089 of the Acts of 1973 Chancellor 
Bromery, UM/Amherst, or his designee, be 
authorized to invite bids with the concur- 
rence of the University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority for selection of a com- 
mercial bank to maintain a branch in the 
Student Union section of the Campus Center. 
Said bids to be based on specifications 
approved by the Treasurer and the President 
with the provision that the bids received 
be presented to the Trustee Finance Committee 
for approval of the bank to be selected. 

A motion was then made to correct the error in the North 
Village Apartments, UM/Amherst, rental rate. It was seconded and 

VOTED : To correct a typographical error appearing on 
page X of Trustee Doc. T73-158 relative to the 
monthly charge for a two-bedroom apartment in 
the University of Massachusetts Building Authority's 
Project #13 (North Village) by striking out the 
figure $180.00 appearing therein and inserting 
in place thereof the figure $185.00, and to amend 
the vote of the Trustees on May 2, 1973, as 
reported on page 4 of the minutes by striking 
out the figure $180.00 and inserting in place 
thereof the figure $185.00. 

Chairman Healey directed the Board's attention to Part V 
of the agenda, Personnel Actions. He pointed out that Item 2-c, 
Part IV, of the agenda would be considered along with other per- 
sonnel actions at this time. 

Trustee Bicknell remarked that, in reference to the 
Medical School personnel proposals, he believed that a super- 
specialty department start-up could have a potentially adverse 
impact on the Medical School's programs. The need for additional 
cardiac surgical units in Massachusetts, he said, approaches zero, 
and the impact on the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching pro- 
grams is potentially grave. He urged that, in view of the implica- 
tions of the personnel action relative to the incipient Department 
of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery, the personnel actions be con- 
sidered separately.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dr. Croce stated that the communities of Central and 
Western Massachusetts expect the Medical School to be a first-rate 
institution, and that without a first-rate department of Cardiac 
and Thoracic Surgery, the School would be second-rate. It would 
be a great blow to Central and Western Massachusetts, he said, to 
omit such a department from a new Medical School. 

Dr. Bicknell expressed his belief that the impact of 
such specialties on the balance of a medical school teaching pro- 
gram deserves the most serious consideration, and questioned the 
impact such specialties would have on one of the goals of the 
Worcester Medical School — the training of family and community 
physicians. 

Chairman Troy observed that this personnel action had 
been given careful consideration at the meeting of the Trustee 
Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. It had been the 
consensus of the Committee, he said, that these appointments were 
necessary for the establishment of a first-rate medical school. 
He pointed out further that the presence of Dr. Collins and 
Dr. Regan would greatly assist the Teaching Hospital in achieving 
its goal of becoming self-supporting. 

Trustee Abrams commented that he felt there should be 
more consideration given in the future to the philosophical 
issues of medical need, perhaps by a Trustee subcommittee. 

President Wood, noting the momentary absence of Chan- 
cellor Soutter, stated that philosophical discussions of the kind 
proposed by Trustee Abrams had been going on for a long time, and 
that the process of perfecting the relationship of the Medical 
School to other institutions and programs had not been barren of 
discussions of this kind. He outlined some of the stages in this 
process, which included the activities of the Crispell Committee 
and of the Board itself. He also stated that no individual per- 
sonnel action irrevocably fixes the future of an institution and 
said, further, that he was impressed with the success of the family 
practice aspects of the Medical School's programs. 

Trustee Bicknell expressed his belief that there is an 
unavoidable tendency for such a program start-up to lead to a 
specialty residency program, and that the implications of such a 
program, including elements of cost and need, should be carefully 
considered before such personnel actions are taken. 

Chancellor Soutter was asked whether any such residency 
training program was contemplated, and he replied that the recom- 
mended head of the department of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery did 
expect to train resident physicians in this specialty. He 
estimated the number to be so trained as two per year. 



TRUSTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

There was no further discussion of Part V of the agenda, 
and in view of Trustee Bicknell's position, the personnel action 
recommended by the Office of the President in a memorandum pre- 
viously distributed (Doc. T75-042) was considered first. Upon 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Personnel Action, 
Office of the President, as detailed in 
Document T75-042. 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to 
the policies and procedures now in effect as 
subsequently amended, revised, added to or 
repealed by the Board of Trustees with respect 
to professional personnel under the provisions 
of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended by 
Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962. The classifica- 
tion, salary range and descriptive job specifica- 
tion for each position to which a member of the 
professional staff is hereby appointed, promoted, 
transferred or determined shall be as hereafter 
determined by the Board of Trustees or under

Chairman Healey then turned to the personnel recommenda- 
tion previously listed under Part IV, Section 2-c of the agenda, 
the report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy 
(Doc. T75-038) . A motion was made and seconded to accept the 
recommendation, and it was

Remarks 



Report of 
Executive 
Committee 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Turning to the subject of veterinary medicine, the Presi- 
dent informed the Board that the issues of regional needs of the 
profession were presented to the Public/Private Forum by representa- 
tives of the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) and the 
Land-Grant Universities of New England. A motion made by President 
John Silber of Boston University was passed unanimously, supporting 
the position of the Land-Grant Universities which proposes in the 
short-term, contracts for student spaces and evaluation of long-term 
alternatives for contracts and shared resource programs with 
existing Veterinary Medical Colleges. 

The vote of the Forum was sent to the Executive Director 
of the New England Governors' Conference for presentation at their 
December meeting. 

Contractual agreements are currently being developed 
with the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University which 
would make it possible to provide space for 60 New England students 
at a cost of about $11,000 to $13,000 per space. The agreements, 
he said, would not prejudice the University's own preveterinary 
programs, and he hoped that the contractual programs could begin 
in September 1975. 

The President said that the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds would be reporting on the Capital Outlay budget, but he 
wanted to note that the report before this Board described a careful 
program put together for all three campuses and that the orderly 
development of the University is implicit in these requests for a 
Capital Outlay Bill. Further, he noted that inflation might well 
change the figures in the report. 



He told the Board that the proposed vote 
Teaching Hospital were essential to its scheduled

of items on the list of equipment requested by the

Affairs. He described this action as an irrespons

ideological intrusion into the development of the

Chancellor Soutter expressed his agreement with the 
President's remarks, and stressed the importance of not losing any 
time in securing and installing the equipment if the hospital is 
to open as scheduled. 

Presenting the report of the Executive Committee at the 
Chairman's request, President Wood spoke of the proposed Interim 
Guidelines — Group Practice Regulations (Doc. T75-065A) . This 
document, he said, is the result of the need to provide regulations 
for the start-up of the Group Practice Plan at the Teaching Hospital 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Ms. Flaimery, representing Trustee Bicknell, indicated her desire 
to amend the Group Practice Plan Interim Guidelines by attaching 
to them the Memorandum of Understanding (Doc. T75-014A) . There 
being no objection, a motion was made and seconded to approve the 
guidelines as amended, and it was 

VOTED : To approve and adopt the Interim Guidelines 
for the University of Massachusetts Medical 
School Group Practice as attached to Trustee 
Document T75-065A, including Doc. T75-014A. 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer of the University 
to establish a University of Massachusetts 
Medical School Group Practice Trust Fund 
in accordance with Chapter 733 of the Acts 
of 1974 and University policy, disbursements 
from said fund to be in accordance with 
the Interim Guidelines for the Group Practice 
(Doc. T75-065A). 

VOTED : To authorize the transfer of the funds pro- 
vided by the Health Professions Capitation 
grant from the U. S. Department of Health, 
Education, and Welfare into the University 
of Massachusetts Medical School Group 
Practice Trust Fund, said money to be 
expended in accordance with the Interim 
Guidelines for the Group Practice. (Trustee 
Doc. T75-065A). 

At the request of the Chairman, President Wood presented 
a Classification of Position Titles (Doc. T75-070) . There being 
no discussion, it was accordingly moved and seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the classification of two position 

titles as set forth in Trustee Document T75-070. 

Chairman Healey called the Board's attention to the 
appointment of the Search Committee for Dean of the Medical School 
(Doc. T75-066A). He explained that Chancellor Soutter had 
indicated his desire to relinquish some of the responsibilities of 
the Medical School. The Executive Committee, he said, had discussed 
the timing and composition of a search committee to find a new dean 
who would later become Chancellor upon Dean Soutter 's retirement. 
The Committee was recommending that it be authorized to select the 
search committee, in view of the fact that the next full Board 
meeting would not be until February. Nominations would then be 
made, as indicated in the proposed vote. After the nominations 
had been made by the respective constituencies, he said, the names 
of the nominees would be distributed to the Board, and each member 
would have an opportunity to express an opinion for the advice to, 
and guidance of, the Executive Committee. Some time after the

nominations for student membership shall 
be submitted by the student body at the 
Worcester campus; and at least four 
nominations for outside membership shall 
be submitted by the President; that the 
Chairman of the Board be and hereby is 
authorized to designate the two Trustees 
for membership on the Committee; and that 
the Executive Committee be and hereby is 
authorized to select the members of the 
Search Committee from among said nominees. 

The procedure to be followed by the Search 
Committee shall be determined by the Committee 
subject to the approval of the President. 

President Wood next mentioned, at the Chairman's request, 
a proposal for an Executive Compensation, Salary and Position 
Classification Study . He said that a long-range study of all non- 
faculty classifications was presently underway, but that it was 
desirable to initiate an immediate, consultant study of the upper 
management and executive structure with attention to equity among 
the campuses, and between the campuses and the President's Office. 
This, he said, would serve to assure the Board, the public, and 
the Legislature of the validity of the University's executive 
development program. 

Chancellor Bromery informed the Chairman that an in-house 
study of this matter was currently underway at the Amherst campus, 



\

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

and expressed concern that there might be detrimental overlap 
between the in-house and consultant studies. 

It was the feeling of both the President and the Chairman, 
however, that two studies need not necessarily clash but would mesh 
their efforts, working out any possible areas of overlap at the 
early, organizational stages. The Chairman described these con- 
siderations as "precatory instructions" to the President's Office. 

There were no further remarks and, after a motion was 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the President to engage a con- 
sulting firm to make an executive compensa- 
tion, salary and position classification 
study and plan for the University and to 
report thereon to the Trustee Executive 
Committee. 

Trustee Troy reported for the Faculty and Educational 
Policy Committee. Turning first to the issue of Faculty Workloads 
Reports (Doc. T75-067), he recapitulated the legislative action 
which had precipitated the studies, and reviewed his own report at 
the November Board meeting. He said the Amherst and Boston 
campuses had presented their reports at the November Committee 
meeting and, in fulfillment of his predictions, their averages of 
hours in direct contact with students were 12.3 and 9.4 hours per 
week, respectively. These averages, he pointed out, more than meet 
the requirements of the preamble to the Appropriations Act. The 
few exceptions on either campus can be explained by reference to 
the organization and structure of various departments. 

Following citation of further statistical breakdowns, 
Trustee Troy said the total weekly workload at Boston and Amherst, 
taking all faculty activities into account, is in excess of 40 
hours and 54 hours per week, respectively. 

Though the University has been shown to meet the terms 
of the legislative mandate, said Trustee Troy, the mandate's ill 
effects are beginning to be felt. Many faculty members with work- 
loads far above the minimums laid down are comparing their loads 
to those of others less heavily engaged, and are expressing dis- 
satisfaction. "In the words of the proverb," he said, "Comparisons 
are odious." He also said that rigidly defined contact-hour 
requirements seriously hamper the University in making the best and 
most flexible use of its resources. 

He added his surprise at the requirements, particularly 
in light of the General Court's record of sympathy with the aims 
of the University over the past 25 years. He said he hopes this 
report will still any further suspicions of "slackness" at the

There being no further discussion, it was accordingly 

VOTED : To certify to the Chairman of the House and 
Senate Ways and Means Committee that the 
teaching faculty of the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst and Boston are in com- 
pliance with the guidelines on instructional 
workload established by the Board. 

Trustee Troy next turned to a discussion of several 
Recommendations for Appointments with Tenure (Doc. T75-062, 063, 
and 064) to the Medical School faculty. He said Chancellor Soutter 
had provided the Committee, at its November meeting, two documents: 
"Overview — Planning Considerations and the University of Massachu- 
setts Teaching Hospital," and "Medical School Departments — their 
Organization, Staffing, and Function." 



He said both documents were central to 
of the Medical School and Teaching Hospital, par 
"Overview," which explains the planning process 
the Teaching Hospital. He cited the document's

ticularly the

ss essential that

With reference to two of the proposed appointments, 
Trustee Troy cited the Medical School's information that half the 
deaths in the nation are due to cardiovascular disease, and quoted 
its point that all physicians should be aware of the wide range of 
surgical services available in this area. He also mentioned the 
report's description of the Teaching Hospital's role as a referral 
hospital. 

Trustee Troy emphasized the documents' explanation that 
major developments in medicine — such as a national health care 
program — could have an as-yet -indeterminate effect on the specialty 
and subspecialty programs of the Medical School. 

He noted that there is no scheduled Board meeting in 
January, and suggested that the planning documents were of such 
import as to justify an informal session of the Board in January 
to provide for the intense examination which they deserved. 

Ms. Flannery, representing Trustee Bicknell , indicated 
her intention to abstain from the three votes. She said the size 
and type of a medical school faculty determines the type of medical 
school, and said a plan which describes the school's faculty mix is 
necessary for proper consideration of such appointments. Though 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

she agreed that exposure to the skills of specialists is desirable, 
the size of residency programs in a specialty determine what sort 
of physicians are produced. She added that some indication of the 
extent of such planned residency programs should be given before 
appointments are made, since such appointments tend to irrevocably 
point a medical school in a given direction. 

Chairman Troy asked Ms . Flannery for her response to the 
documents he spoke of, and she expressed her belief that there is 
no need for open-heart surgeons in the Worcester area, and that 
training such unneeded physicians is both cost-ineffective and 
ultimately dangerous. 

Trustee Troy replied that he resented the attitude that 
these appointments were being made on an ad hoc, piecemeal basis. 
There had been several years of careful planning and study about 
the direction to be taken by the Medical School, he said, and he 
wished to "strenuously deny" that the Medical School departments 
were being built in an "accreted fashion." 

Trustee Abrams stated his view that chairmen of such major 
departments as pediatrics and psychiatry ought to be hired first, 
before appointments such as those recommended, to which Chancellor 
Soutter replied that the Medical School had been trying for several 
years to appoint major department chairmen, but he said it is not 
always possible to wait until such positions are filled before 
proceeding to other appointments. He cited pediatrics as an 
example of the difficulties of recruitment. He said it has taken 
seven years to find the right person. 

Trustee Carlson asked whether representatives of ex- 
officio Trustees were entitled to a vote. He was informed by the 
chair that previous rulings had indicated that it was permissible, 
to which he replied that he believed it to be inappropriate. 

Ms. Flannery indicated that her abstention was upon 
instruction of Trustee Bicknell. She said she was abstaining not 
in judgment of the qualifications of the people, but because she 
felt the need for more information about the whole faculty. 

There being no further discussion, upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To concur in the appointment by the President 
of Dr. John J. Collins as Professor of Cardiac 
and Thoracic Surgery with tenure at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Worcester, with total 
compensation and each component thereof to

Trustee Rowland presented the report of the Long-Range 
Planning Committee. At the Committee's November meeting, there had 
been discussion with members of the Harbor Campus New Directions 
Committee on enrollment planning issues. The Committee, she said, 
had expressed support for the concepts of diversity and active 
recruitment, but had doubted unsupported assumptions about a large, 
untapped student pool. 

It seemed that there were no substantial differences 
between enrollment planning guidelines adopted by the Board in 
June and the recommendations of the New Directions Committee. 

President Wood had stated, after the reports of the 
Boston Campus and the New Directions Committee, his view of the 
importance of keeping a close watch to determine whether the 
June 1974 enrollment guidelines are still effective. Others had 
agreed on this point, while adding that statewide enrollment trends 
ought also to be monitored. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

A second agenda item dealt with enrollment planning issues 
at the Amherst campus, with particular reference to the 25,000 
enrollment ceiling adopted by the Board in 1971. The Committee 
plans to continue its review of enrollment plans for several 
months . 

Finally, the Committee heard a report by Trustees 
Chandler and Spiller on a meeting with the Medical School Visiting 
Committee, with special reference to several long-range planning 
issues . 

Trustee Shaler, Chairman of the Committee on Student 
Affairs, next submitted his report. He described the Report on 
Counseling Programs at UM/Boston and UM/ Amherst , saying that the 
report of the Amherst campus, which had been given first, was 
impressive. Dr. Gage of the Amherst campus had described the 
greatest success of the Student Affairs staff as that of Affirma- 
tive Action, and the greatest point of dissatisfaction as the 
inability to recruit more low-income, minority, and nontraditional 
students. 

Chancellor Golino introduced the Boston Campus's report, 
which described the substantial problems his administration had 
faced in the area of Student Affairs when he joined the University 
in 1973, and the continuing difficulties caused by understaf f ing 
and a lack of funds. Vice Chancellor Tubbs described areas of 
progress, which included health services, vocational counseling, 
and tutoring. 

Trustee Shaler reported that he had asked, at this 
meeting, about 30 positions for counseling and advising which had 
been approved and funded by the Legislature for the FY 1974 budget. 
Chancellor Golino had replied that these positions had been 
authorized before his appointment, and he promised to report on 
the 30 positions at the December meeting of the Committee. 

Trustee Snowden said she had read the 1971 Gage Report, 
which had precipitated efforts to upgrade counseling and advising, 
and had found it an impressive document. She said she knew of the 
problems Chancellor Golino faced at the Harbor Campus in the area 
of advising and counseling, and added that she hoped faster progress 
could be made. 

Chancellor Golino assured Trustee Snowden that he was 
well aware of the need to proceed quickly with improvements, and 
said he believed that Vice Chancellor Tubbs had done a remarkable 
job in the short time since his appointment. He expressed his 
confidence that the complete report on counseling and advising to 
be given in February by the Harbor Campus to the Student Affairs 
Committee would be satisfactory.

Chairman Healey remarked that the upgrading of counseling 
and advising services was a matter of deep feeling and top priority 
to the Board of Trustees, and emphasized the importance of an 
explanation of the missing 30 positions. 

Trustee Shaler then reported a discussion on the proposed 
Early Decision Admission Program at the Amherst campus. Various 
views on the desirability of this program had been expressed, and 
it had been determined that no resolution would be made at the 
meeting. 

Trustee Shaler next introduced the WUMB License Applica- 
tion (Doc. T75-045). He said the presentation of the Boston Campus 
had been thorough, and he recommended the application's approval. 
There being no further discussion, upon motion made and seconded 
it was

Report of the 
Committee on 
the Budget 

Capital Outlay 
Budget Request 
FY 1976 
(Doc. T75-061) 



Trustee Pumphret of the Budget Committee next delivered 
the report of the combined meeting of the Committees on the Budget 
and Buildings and Grounds. He described the recommended Capital 
Outlay Budget for FY 1976 (Doc. T75-061) . The Executive branch of 
state government had not encouraged a capital outlay request for 
the past several years, he observed. The needs of the Amherst 
campus, he said, are primarily in the area of campus safety, and in 
the repair and remodeling of older buildings, among other items. 

The Boston Campus needs funds to complete Phase II of 
construction, especially in view of the rise in enrollments and 
the limitations on present classroom space. Another need, he said, 
is for funds to build the Arts and Sciences Building. 

The Worcester Campus's part in the capital outlay 
request is for funds to purchase equipment for the Teaching 
Hospital, to make possible its scheduled opening in July 1975. 
Part of its request also deals with funds required for site com- 
pletion work for the Basic and Clinical Science Building and the 
Teaching Hospital. 

The total capital outlay request, said Trustee Pumphret, 
is $75.8 million. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the FY 1976 Capital Outlay Budget as 
outlined in Trustee Document T75-061. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Pumphret next turned to a proposed Emergency 
Fuel Fund Transfer for the Amherst Campus (Doc. T75-060) . He said 
this transfer was needed to keep pace with the rising costs of 
fuel. After motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the transfer of $1.25 million from 
Account 01 to Account 08 for the Amherst Campus. 
This transfer is needed to meet existing cash 
flow requirements in the 08 account and the 
transfer can only be considered as an emergency 
and temporary action. 

In the absence of Trustee Knowles, Trustee Pumphret also 
gave the report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds, citing 
first a recommendation to grant a request by the Department of 
Public Works for permission to install a Motorist Call Box Antenna 
on Mt . Toby Lookout Tower (Doc. T75-059) . There was no objection 
to this recommendation, and after a motion was made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the Amherst campus, 
or those designated by him, to prepare the 
necessary instruments to license the Department 
of Public Works of the Commonwealth to enter upon 
the lands of the University at Mount Toby in 
Franklin County for the purpose of installing, 
maintaining and operating the Motorist Aid Relay 
Installation on Route 1-91; further, that 
Treasurer Kenneth W. Johnson shall be empowered 
and authorized to execute all instruments for 
and in behalf of the Trustees of the University 
in furtherance of these matters. 

The second recommendation of the Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds was for approval of Schematic Drawings for Building 120 
(Gymnasium) (Doc. T75-058) . Trustee Pumphret described an excellent 
report on the proposed design which had been presented at the 
meeting, and mentioned that the gross square footage of the design 
had been reduced from previous proposals by a third, and the total 
cost by a half. 

The concerns expressed at the meeting, he said, had been 
about the exit system, and about the future adequacy of the build- 
ing. He informed the Board that the design was not in final form. 
Chairman Healey stated his view that reduction of gross area by a 
third and cost by a half was indeed impressive. Trustee Rowland 
reminded the Board that the completion of College Building 030 
(classroom building) was also vital and necessary to the well-being 
of the University. 

There was no more discussion, and after a motion, which 
was seconded, it was

Campus as presented by the architectural 
firm of Anderson Notter Associates, Boston, 
Massachusetts, and as detailed in Document 
T75-058. 

Chairman Healey next called upon Trustee Gordon to give 
the report of the Committee on Finance. After briefly reporting on 
the Recommendations of the Investment Counsel , Trustee Gordon 
directed the Board's attention to several recommendations which 
enactment would pave the way for the orderly opening of the 
Teaching Hospital. 

The first was for Rates for Patient Care and Services 
(Doc. T75-050) . Trustee Gordon said that, in the Committee's 
recommendation, a philosophical principle was involved. The 
Teaching Hospital is to be a public hospital, and should therefore 
not charge unreasonably high rates. At the same time, he said, its 
rates should not be competitive with those of the Worcester area 
hospitals, out of respect for the rights of the private sector. 
For these reasons, it was the recommendation of the Committee that 
the Board approve a rate of $125 per day for a two-bed room. 

He said this rate is higher than that of the Worcester 
area hospitals, but is comparable to that of the Boston teaching 
hospitals. 

There was no objection, and after a motion was made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve and adopt the UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHU- 
SETTS TEACHING HOSPITAL PROPOSED RATE BOOK as 
set forth in Trustee Document T75-050 subject to 
any changes or amendments thereto which may be 
required by law or regulation or which the Chan- 
cellor of the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester, in consultation with the President, 
may deem necessary. 

Trustee Gordon then spoke in succession of several recom- 
mendations which would provide some of the technical necessities 
for the opening of the hospital. These were: proposed Credit and 
Collection Policies (Doc. T75-051, 052); a proposed Cost Reimburse - 
ment Contract with Blue Cross of Massachusetts, Inc . (Doc. T75- 
053); a proposed Designation of a Fiscal Intermediary (Doc. T75- 
054) between the Hospital and the Department of Health, Education 
and Welfare in accordance with the Medicare Act; and a Service Con- 
tract for a Computerized Accounting System (including patient 
billing, etc.) for the Teaching Hospital and Medical Group Practice 
Plan (Doc. T75-055) .

Kenneth W. Johnson, with the concurrence of 
President Wood and Chancellor Soutter, be

reporting system for the University Teaching 
Hospital, including options for adding the 
Physicians Group Practice accounting system 
based on the generality of their bid proposal 
of September 27, 1974, and the fees and charges 
contained therein. 

The next recommendation of the Committee on Finance was 
for the Renewal of Field Office Lease at 930 Dorchester Avenue ,

The Committee also wished to recommend that the Board 
approve a change in the provisions of the Richard T. Hogan Endowment 
Fund (Doc. T75-049) . Trustee Gordon said that changes in the 
personal situation of Mr. Joseph Hogan had made the amendment of 
the provisions necessary. There was no objection, and a motion 
having been made and seconded, it was

February 23, 1972, establishing the Richard T. 
Hogan Memorial Scholarship Fund as an endowment 
fund to read "... for a period of three years 
to be added to the principal of the fund and

Trustee Gordon described a report on a proposed Health 
Maintenance Organization (HMO) at the Amherst campus (Doc. T75-056) 
He informed the Board that the report given to the Committee at its 
November meeting had been excellent, and he said that it had been 
well satisfied with the completeness of the report. 

This concluded the reports of the standing committees, 
and the Chairman turned to the next agenda item, Personnel Actions. 
He cited two actions (Docs. T75-068, 069) which ratified appoint- 
ments previously made at the Medical School, and confirmed several 
new appointments approved by the Committee on Faculty and Educationa 
Policy. Ms. Flannery stated her intention to abstain from the 
votes, saying that she hoped all such appointments would reflect 
an emphasis on primary care at the Medical School. 

There was no further objection, and after a motion was 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To ratify the appointments, with the dates 
specified, as set forth in Trustee Document 
T75-068 and approve the components of com- 
pensation as set forth in said document, 
said components to be renegotiated and sub- 
mitted to the Board of Trustees for its 
approval not later than July 1, 1975; 
further, that the Board of Trustees autho- 
rize the preparation and filing of any 
documents necessary for the implementation 
of this vote. 

and it was also 

VOTED : To approve the prospective appointments

filing of any documents necessary for 
the implementation of this vote. 

Ms. Flannery abstained from both votes. 

Chairman Healey next asked for the report of the 
Delegate to the Board of Higher Education, in accordance with the 
agenda. Secretary Hardy delivered this report in Trustee Knowles's 
absence. She described various actions of the Board of Higher 
Education, among them the decision by the Board to designate a

on non- implementation of approved programs; and the adoption of a 
tuition policy statement as presented by the Board's Ad Hoc Com- 
mittee on Tuition. 

President Wood explained that the tuition statement said 
that the Board of Higher Education would recommend tuition increases 
if the Legislature would increase scholarship funds. He said he 
regarded this sudden reference to tuition increases as perplexing 
in light of previous consulting and advising procedures, and in 
light of an agreement at the Williamstown meeting that no tuition 
increases at state institutions would be necessary in the fore- 
seeable future. 

Secretary Hardy informed the Board that copies of the 
tuition policy statement would be forwarded to members. 

Chairman Healey initiated an executive session at 
5:55 p.m., and the meeting adjourned at 6:05 p.m.

to visit the campuses to talk with administrators, faculty and 
students in order to connect the reality of education with its 
budgetary aspects dealt with at the State House.

Remarks 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

He observed that the State has some severe fiscal problems 
but said he believed it is still possible to solve educational 
problems. He said he looked forward to working closely with the 
Board, the students, and the faculty of the University as well as 
with the other components of the higher education system to achieve 
things while coping with the State's fiscal problems over the next 
year or eighteen months. 

He expressed his intention at today's meeting to sit back, 
listen, and become educated himself. 

The Chairman also welcomed Professor Stephen Breyer, a 
member of the faculty of Harvard Law School and a new Trustee. 

The minutes of the December meeting were presented. 
There being no discussion, it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of i 
December 4, 1974. 

Chairman Healey next called on the President. President 
Wood began by seconding the Chairman's welcome to the Governor. He 
observed that, although former Governor Sargent had once attended 
an informal session of the Board, this was the first occasion since 
he became President that a governor had attended a formal meeting 
as a Trustee. He said he believed former Governor Peabody had been 
the last governor to attend a meeting. 

Beginning his report to the Board, President Wood 
described the activities of the Search Committee for a Dean of the 
Medical School. He said the Committee had met three times and its 
efforts had included placing advertisements in The Chronicle of 
Higher Education , The New York Times , and various medical journals 
and sending letters of solicitation for nominations to medical 
schools and other health institutions. He said more than 40 
nominations had been received thus far. 

The President's second item was a report on the matter 
of veterinary medicine for New England. He said that the Governors' 
Conference on December 19 had endorsed the plan of the presidents 
of the New England Land-Grant Universities to contract for positions 
for New England veterinary students in institutions outside New 
England. He said negotiations for such contracts have begun with 
the University of Pennsylvania and with Cornell University. 

The President then called upon Chancellor Bromery of the 
Amherst campus for his remarks. Chancellor Bromery began by dis- 
cussing the situation of the School of Education on the Amherst 
campus. He said he had heard on a television news broadcast that 
amounts of money said to be involved in alleged misuse of outside 
funds had reached fifteen million dollars. He said he wished to 
inform the Trustees that such figures were grossly exaggerated, and 



I 



TRUSTEE 



I

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

that he intends to release information which will correct such 
reports. 

Dr. Bromery mentioned his statement at his press con- 
ference the preceding week that the Treasurer of the University had 
turned certain materials over to the District Attorney, the United 
States Attorney, and the Attorney General as a result of the first 
phase of an internal audit at the School of Education. He had said 
at that press conference that immediate steps would be taken to 
insure that sound administrative practices would be instituted at 
the School of Education. He had also said that when these 
practices were established, a search committee would be established 
to select a new dean with suitable experience to capitalize on the 
strengths of the School of Education. 

Chancellor Bromery next informed the Board that, as a 
result of conferences of Associate Provost David Bischoff with the 
faculty of the School of Education and with the Chancellor, he 
planned to take several steps designed to guarantee proper control 
of internal administration and administration of outside money 
at the School of Education. He listed the steps. (See attached 
news release for details.) 

Finally, Chancellor Bromery said he was fully aware of 
the Trustees' and University officers' grave responsibilities to 
maintain the public trust. He assured the Trustees he would take 
all necessary steps to assure this trust and to meet his responsi- 
bilities to the students, the institution, and the Commonwealth. 

The President expressed his support for Chancellor 
Bromery 's statement. He informed the Board that the Treasurer's 
audit was continuing and that he would report to the Board from 
time-to-time in a manner consistent with the requirements of the 
law and justice. He next called on Chancellor Golino of the Boston 
Campus . 

Chancellor Golino said only that he wished to welcome 
the Governor to the Harbor Campus, and that he hoped he would 
visit the campus frequently. The President next called on Dr. 
wheeler, representing Chancellor Soutter of the Medical School, 
who indicated that he had no remarks. 

Chairman Healey turned to the reports of the standing 
committees. Noting that the President had already covered the 
activities of the Medical School dean search, he called on Vice 
President Edelman to report for the Executive Committee on the 
Amherst Affirmative Action Plan (Doc. T75-081) . 

Mr. Edelman said that, with an eye on the postal budget, 
the Trustees had not received by mail the entire five-volume plan 
because of its size but, he said, it was available in the President' 
Office should any Trustee wish to examine it.

He observed that the plan had been submitted to the 
Department of Health, Education and Welfare in March of 1974. He 
said it conformed in all respects with HEW regulations, and that 
it was a plan of which the University could be proud. He pointed 
out, however, that the plan had not received formal HEW approval, 
and it was felt that a formal vote of approval by the Board of 
Trustees might speed HEW approval, since it would indicate that the 
plan had the full weight of Trustee endorsement. 

He also pointed out that, in addition to the plan, the 
University could be proud of affirmative action progress, 
particularly in faculty hiring, which had been made in the last 
several years. 

Secretary Parks asked if the plan contained any minimum 
quota. Vice President Edelman replied that, although quotas are 
prohibited by law, the plan does have goals and timetables, and it 
reaches down to the smallest units of the campus. There being no 
further discussion and, a motion having been made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees adopts and approves 
the Affirmative Action Plan of the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst which was submitted 
to the Regional Office of Civil Rights (H.E.W.) 
on March 14, 1974, and is summarized in Trustee 
Document T75-081, provided, however, that this 
vote shall in no way be construed as a statement 
or admission of any prior discriminatory 
practice in employment. 

Chairman Healey called upon Trustee Troy to give the 
report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. Trustee 
Troy reported that at a brief meeting earlier in the day, the 
Committee had voted to recommend approval of the February 1975 
Amherst Graduation Lists (Doc. T75-076) . A motion having been 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve and ratify the Graduation Lists of 
February 1, 1975, UM/Amherst, as certified by 
the Recorder of that campus and contained in 
Document T75-076. 

Trustee Shaler next gave the report of the Student 
Affairs Committee. At its meeting on December 17, 1974, the Com- 
mittee had heard reports from both the Amherst and Boston campuses 
about progress and problems of day care centers. He reported that 
Mr. Searson, University General Counsel, would report to the 
Committee at its next meeting on some legal issues of day care. 

Mr. Keith, Associate Vice President for University Policy, 
had reported on a proposed University-wide policy for tuition

2/5/75—276 

RELEASE: IMMEDIATE 

CONTACT: Peter Gluckler 

AMHERST, Mass. — Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery of 
the Amherst campus told the University of Massachusetts Board 
of Trustees, Wednesday, that he is taking five steps regarding 
the administration of the School of Education. 

"Based on Associate Provost David C. Bischoff's consulta- 
tions with the faculty cabinet of the School of Education and his 
subsequent discussions with me, I am taking the following actions," 
said Dr. Bromery. 

"First, I am assigning William J. Mellen, special 
assistant to the Provost, to work with the current acting dean 
of the School of Education to assure continuity of the academic 
programs within the school and to prepare for the orderly trans- 
fer of administrative responsibilities. 

"Second, I am assigning Karl W. Broekhuizen of my 
Office of Budgeting and Institutional Studies to the School 
of Education as acting administrative officer reporting to the 
acting dean. Mr. Broekhuizen is the associate budget director 
for the Amherst campus. Prior to joining my staff he was business 
manager of the Graduate School. 

"Third, I will appoint a new acting dean no later than 
March 1 taking into consideration recommendations submitted to 
Associate Provost Bischoff by the faculty of the School of Educa- 
tion. In the interim, Earl Seidman will continue to serve as 
acting dean. 

"Fourth, the review process already under way in the 
School of Education and coordination and supervision of this 
interim administrative arrangement will continue under the 
direction of Associate Provost Bischoff. 

"Finally, I am assigning the responsibility for grant 
and contract administration for all external funding received 
by UM/ Amherst to the Graduate School Office of Research under the 
direction of Associate Dean Pat W. Camerino. Dean Camerino will 
be charged with the responsibility to expand and strengthen campus

procedures and regulations governing the handling of research 
and training awards. In addition, I will ask Dean Camerino to 
develop guidelines for principal investigators to assist them in 
proper fiscal management of contract and grant funds. 

"I am fully aware of the grave responsibility the 
trustees and officers of the University bear in maintaining 
the public trust. In sharing this burden I will continue to 
take all necessary steps to insure this trust and to meet my 
responsibilities to students, the institution and the Common- 
wealth," Bromery concluded. 

UM/ Amherst Budget Director Warren K. Gulko, said of 
Broekhuizen's temporary assignment to the School of Education, 
"Although Karl is sorely needed during this time of institutional 
budget crises, it is imperative that we provide the most capable 
expertise to the school in order to ensure an orderly transition 
of management. Karl's assignment will be to ensure that the proper 
administrative procedures and safeguards are strengthened and ex- 
panded to guarantee prudent financial management." 

Associate Provost Bischoff also praised Mellen's 
abilities as an administrator. 

"Bill Mellen, although irreplaceable in my office, has 
broad administrative experience within the institution," he said. 
"He serves not only as a special assistant to the Provost, but 
in the past served as acting dean of the former School of Home 
Economics and associate dean of the College of Food and Natural 
Resources. He also served as chairman of the Faculty Senate 
Academic Matters Committee for several years. 

"I'm confident he'll be of great assistance to the 
faculty and administration of the school," concluded Bischoff.

waivers. The tuition waivers granted under the proposed policy 
would be divided into three categories: compensation for services 
rendered, financial aid, and courtesy or reciprocal arrangements. 
The Committee had voted to recommend the policy to the Finance 
Committee. 

The Committee had heard remarks, Trustee Shaler said, 
from Chancellor Soutter of the Worcester campus about serious prob- 
lems in the matter of financial aid to medical students. He said 
a report on this matter would be made at a forthcoming Committee 
meeting. 

Trustee Shaler said the Committee had then discussed 
University counseling programs. Both Dr. Gage and Chancellor Golino 
had promised a full report in February. Chancellor Golino gave 
some preliminary information about the 30 FY 1974 counseling 
positions. 

Finally, the Student Affairs Committee had discussed a 
proposed amendment to the vote establishing a commencement fund 
which would allow the residue from that fund to be used for career 
placement activities. The Committee had voted to recommend the 
amendment to the Finance Committee. 

Trustee Gordon next presented the report of the Finance 
Committee. He first mentioned a report of the insurance consultant, 
Mr. Albert, on a plan for a Proposed General Liability Insurance 
Policy . Mr. Albert had described the comprehensive plan, which 
would replace the piecemeal coverage heretofore afforded the Uni- 
versity. It excluded medical malpractice at the Teaching Hospital 
and for the doctors at the Amherst campus health center. There 
was no further discussion and, upon motion made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer of the University, 
in consultation with the President, to solicit 
bids for the privilege of providing a compre- 
hensive liability insurance program in accord- 
ance with the Invitation to Bidders and Speci- 
fications set forth in Trustee Document T75-071. 

Trustee Gordon next mentioned the matter of Tuition 
Waiver Policies (Docs. T75-072A and T75-075B) . He reported that 
Mr. Keith had made an excellent and complete study of the matter 
over the preceding one and one-half years and had reported to the 
Committee. After recapitulating the categories of waivers to be 
offered, Trustee Gordon moved that the proposed vote be adopted. 

A brief discussion ensued about details of the policy. 
President Wood remarked that Chancellor Golino had raised questions 
of equity about one of the proposed policies and he said the 
President's Office would probably propose an amendment to these

policies at a future meeting of the Board. Trustee Troy asked if 
the matter of tuition waivers for residence hall counselors, which 
had been tabled at the Student Affairs meeting, was still open. 
Mr. Keith replied affirmatively. 

The motion was seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the REPORT OF TUITION WAIVER POLICIES 
AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS (T75-072A) 
and adopt the Tuition Waiver Policies as set 
forth in Trustee Document T75-075B, which policies 
are based upon the recommendations contained 
in said Report. 

The next item in Trustee Gordon's report was the recom- 
mendation of the Student Affairs Committee on a Proposed Amendment 
of Vote Establishing a Commencement Fund (Doc. T75-073) . There 
was no discussion and, after a motion was made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To amend the Board of Trustees' vote of 

November 21, 1966, creating a Commencement 
Fund, to read, in its entirety, as follows: 

To establish the policy of placing the 
expense of commencement exercises and 
related events on a self-supporting 
basis through the establishment of a 
Commencement Fee of ten dollars ($10.00) 
to be assessed all students in the fall 
semester of their final academic year or 
at the beginning of the last semester or 
term prior to receiving a degree and to 
authorize the establishment of a trust 
fund entitled "Commencement Fund" as a 
depository for said fees. Further, to 
authorize the expenditure of said funds 
for commencement exercises and related 
events, as well as for such other self- 
supporting activities or services for 
the benefit of graduating students or 
students who have graduated from the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst; 
provided, however, that fees collected 
prior to February 5, 1975, shall be 
expended only for the purposes for which 
the funds were collected. 

Completing his report, Trustee Gordon alluded to the 
matter of General Endowment Funds (Doc. T75-074) . There was no 
discussion, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 



TRUSTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To establish a General Endowment Fund for each 
campus and the President's Office to receive 
small unrestricted gifts and bequests not 
specifically identified by name, such funds to 
be kept invested by the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts in such a manner as they 
determine and the President and the Chancellors 
to expend the earned income from their respec- 
tive funds for such purposes as they may deem 
to be in the best interest of the University. 

Chairman Healey turned to the next item on the agenda. 
Presenting the report of the Nominating Committee, Trustee Shaler, 
Chairman of the Committee, remarked that the principle behind the 
nominations was to insure that no Trustee, the Chairmen, excepted, 
would serve on more than two Committees. Comment had been solicited 
from Trustees, he said, and the Proposed Trustee Committee List — 
1975 (Doc. T75-080) had been completed. There being no discussion, 
a motion was made and seconded, and it was 



VOTED: 



To confirm and approve the following Officers 
of the Board of Trustees, together with Com- 
mittee assignments, for the period February 1975 
to the annual meeting in 1976, as follows: 



Chairman 
Secretary 
Assistant Secretary 



Joseph P. Healey 
Gladys Keith Hardy 
Dorothy K. Eichel 



The Delegate to the Board of Higher Education 
and the Committee assignments for 1975-76 are 
as contained in Document T75-080. 

Chairman Healey expressed his intention to do his best 
in serving as Chairman for another year. 

Chairman Healey turned next to a Classification of 
Position Title and Personnel Action — UM/Worcester (Docs. T75-077, 
T75-078) and a Personnel Action— UM/Amherst (Doc. T75-079) . He 
informed the Board that these matters had the endorsement of the 
Executive Committee. A motion was made and seconded, and it was 



VOTED : 



and it was 



VOTED : 



To confirm and approve the classification of 
position title as detailed in Doc. T75-077 and 
the personnel action as detailed in Doc. T75-078, 



That the classification of Position Titles

Acts of 1962 shall be fixed in a weekly 
salary range from a minimum to a maximum

or fixed at a specific weekly salary rate 
which shall not be changed except by vote of

shall not be designated by any job group

and it was also 

VOTED : That in accordance with the provisions of 

Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962, the position 
title in the Professional Staff detailed in 
Document T75-077 is classified at a weekly 
salary rate specified after the title of 
position subject to subsequently being amended, 
revised, added to or repealed by the Board 
of Trustees under the provisions of said 
Chapter 648. 

and also 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject 
to the policies and procedures now in effect 
as subsequently amended, revised, added to 
or repealed by the Board of Trustees with 
respect to professional personnel under the 
provisions of Chapter 75 of the General Laws 
as amended by Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962. 
The classification, salary range and descrip- 
tive job specification for each position to 
which a member of the professional staff is 
hereby appointed, promoted, transferred or 
determined shall be as hereafter determined 
by the Board of Trustees or under their 
authority. 

It was further 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees grant an exemption 
from the provisions of Paragraph six of the 
University of Massachusetts Sabbatical Leave 
Policy in the case of Mortimer H. Appley for 
the reasons set forth in Trustee Document 
T75-079. 

The next item was the report of the Delegate to the 
Board of Higher Education. Trustee Knowles reported on the two 
BHE meetings which had been held since the previous Board of 
Trustees meeting. The December 20th meeting heard reports on the 
subjects of affirmative action regulations and enrollment regula- 
tions. On the subject of enrollments, Dr. Wood had congratulated 
the BHE staff on its work and cautioned it against presenting 
figures in a void without explaining implied assumptions about 



[

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

higher education budgets. Among reports to the January 17th 
meeting was a status report from Vice President Edelman and General 
Counsel Sear son on regulations for affirmative action. Mr. Sear son 
had explained the complexities involved, and Mr. Edelman informed 
the BHE that he would submit a draft of regulations to the Board 
in the near future. 

The Chairman asked for other business to come before the 
Board. Professor Gagnon, Faculty representative to the Board from 
the Boston Campus, read at this time a motion passed by the UM/ 
Boston Budget Committee calling for the preservation of the 15:1 
faculty-student ratio. President Wood remarked that the Board 
always welcomes such items of information from faculty representa- 
tives, but said he wished to remind the Board and the public that 
budget making in the University has been established through the 
governance process, which includes roles of the Chancellor and the 
Multi-campus Budget Committee. He said the final budget request is 
transmitted to the Governor through the Board of Trustees, and that 
Professor Gagnon 's document did not represent the official policy 
of either the Chancellor or the Multi-campus Budget Committee. 

Governor Dukakis asked President Wood whether any thought 
had been given to programs which would train para-medical personnel 
in veterinary medicine over a two-year or four-year period as an 
alternative to the established eight-year program for doctors of 
veterinary medicine. He also asked if the veterinary profession 
itself could be asked to develop such alternatives. 

President Wood agreed that the approaches sketched by 
Governor Dukakis were advisable in avoiding an impossibly large 
capital outlay request for a veterinary medical school, and men- 
tioned that part of the Land-Grant Presidents' report called for 
use of existing and potential para-medical training programs at 
schools of natural resources and agriculture. He added that the 
Amherst campus has such a program. 

Secretary Parks, responding to Professor Gagnon 's state- 
ment, suggested attention to the question of the ability or 
inability of teachers to address themselves to the way in which 
institutions go about meeting the needs of students. 

There being no further business to come before the Board, 
the Chairman declared the meeting adjourned at 3:05 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
February 5, 1975. 

In his opening remarks, Chairman Healey welcomed Mr. 
George L. Pumphret, whose term as a Trustee had expired. The 
Chairman described Mr. Pumphret as one of the finest persons and 
ablest Trustees he had ever known. It would be difficult, he said, 
to imagine the Board without him. He then proposed the following 
"Resolution of Thanks and Appreciation to Trustee George L. 
Pumphret": 

Certain members of any governing body play such 
a pervasive role that their departure leaves a 
painful gap. George Pumphret held such a place 
for fifteen years on the Board of Trustees of 
the University of Massachusetts, and his 
departure leaves such a gap. 

The variety and character of George's special 
gifts to the University over that period are 
truly impressive. They include professional 
skill, great good judgment, and deep wisdom 
as chairman of the Trustee Finance and Budget 
Committees, and as chairman of the University 
of Massachusetts Building Authority. 

Beneath these gifts were the facility to grasp 
the large picture without missing subtle details, 
an unflagging readiness to give energetic, con- 
scientious attention to the responsibilities 
of leadership in the Board, and the unremitting 
perspective and sense of humor with which he 
tempered its work. 

The Board hereby expresses its thanks and 
admiration for George Pumphret 's years of 
generous care in the knowledge that, because of 
him, the University is greater than it would 
have otherwise been. 

The unanimous adoption of the resolution was accompanied 
by a standing ovation. 

The Chairman then asked the President to make his report. 
President Wood began with another tribute, this one to Chancellor 
Soutter of the Worcester campus, recently retired for health 
reasons. He regretted that Chancellor Soutter had been unable to 
attend the meeting because he was away on vacation, but felt it 
appropriate, as the Board was meeting in the Medical School, to 
express a sense of loss.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The President said, "The word most frequently used to 
describe Dr. Soutter in news stories and features since he was 
appointed Dean in 1963 is 'tireless.' Whether it was at the State 
House, at Worcester, or at meetings of this Board, Bimi Soutter has 
given unsparingly of his energies and his time to the creation of 
this Medical Center. 

"A Boston Globe reporter, writing in 1970 about the contro 
versy over the construction of the teaching hospital, said: 'If 
any school can overcome overwhelming problems by dint of sheer 
enthusiasm, UMass Medical certainly will.' That enthusiasm, and 
that relentless willingness to solve overwhelming problems, marked 
Dr. Soutter 's style from the moment of his appointment in 
December 1963. 

"I can testify from personal experience — he never 
hesitated to scold, chasten, and speak out for the school. When the 
Department of Health, Education and Welfare failed to come up with 
$16.5 million toward the construction of the teaching hospital, he 
described the agency as 'totally immoral.' When a. newspaper 
columnist questioned the need for the hospital, Dr. Soutter said 
the newspaper's founder would turn in his grave at the thought that 
the paper had become beholden to what he called 'the big, powerful, 
private medical interests.' 

"As a first, pioneering class of sixteen students com- 
pleted their studies last year — with a faculty of 51 — Dr. Soutter 
noted that none of the sixteen students had considered transferring 
to a more established school. He said: 'It would be sort of like 
transferring out of heaven. ' 

"He once characterized the relationship between faculty 
and students here by describing faculty members as 'senior 
colleagues' and students as 'junior colleagues,' collaborating in 
the learning process. 

"Mr. Chairman, Chancellor Soutter meant so much to this 
place and to this faculty and these students. We'll find another 
occasion to speak of his accomplishments directly, but I ask that 
this statement be recorded at this time." 

It was so ordered. 

President Wood next informed the Board that Dr. Karl 
Hittelman, Chairman of the Search Committee for Dean and Chancellor 
of the Medical School, reported that the Committee would be 
accelerating its work with weekly meetings now that over one 
hundred nominations had been received. He added that Dr. Leona 
Baumgartner had been unable, due to health and unavailability, to 
participate in the Committee's work to date, although she would be 
returning at the end of the month. However, he said, the burden 
could be lessened if an additional person could be added to the 
committee of nine.

A motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That the Search Committee established pursuant 
to the December 4, 1974, vote of the Board of 
Trustees be expanded to include an individual 
to be appointed by the President, said indivi- 
dual to be from outside the University community 
and of professional distinction in medical educa- 
tion, health affairs or leadership in higher 
education. 

The President told the Board that Mr. Stephen Smith, 
President of the John F. Kennedy Library Corporation, had asked 
about the availability of a UMass campus location for the Kennedy 
Library. Mr. Smith had toured both the Harbor Campus and the 
Amherst campus, and it was the President's impression that the 
interest was serious. He reported that both Chancellors were 
enthusiastic, and said discussions with the Library Corporation 
would continue. He also expressed the conviction that the library 
and the museum should remain together. 

The next item on the presidential agenda was the 
executive compensation study being conducted by the Hay Associates. 
President Wood said he expected the study to be completed by the 
end of the month and said, further, that he would report its 
results to the Trustees in writing. He added his belief that the 
Trustees would find the study reassuring. 

The President then turned to the matter of the School of 
Education Visiting Committee (Doc. T75-086) . He reminded . the 
members of the Board that he had written to Chairman Healey on 
February 19, providing certain information and making certain recom- 
mendations. This memorandum had been made available to the public. 
He was prepared, he said, to announce the names of the persons he 
recommended for the Visiting Committee and to ask the concurrence 
of the Board. 

The proposed committee members were: Dr. John I. Goodlad, 
Dean of the Graduate School of Education, University of California 
at Los Angeles; Dr. Maxine Greene, Professor of Philosophy of 
Education, Teachers College, Columbia University; Dr. Carl Marberger 
Senior Associate, the National Committee for Citizens in Education; 
Dr. Harold Haizlip, Commissioner of Education, Virgin Islands; 
Dr. K. Patricia Cross, Senior Educational Psychologist, the Educa- 
tional Testing Service and President of the American Association of 
Higher Education. 

Consultants to the Committee were: David Darland, 
Associate Director, Institute for Professional Development of the 
National Educational Association; Phillip Jackson, Dean of the 
Graduate School of Education, University of Chicago; Harold Noah, 
President of Economics and Education, Teachers College, Columbia

University; Mark Shedd, Secretary and Commissioner of Education, 
State of Connecticut. 

There being no objection to the nominees, and a motion 
having been made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees accept the recommenda- 
tion of the Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst for the appointment of 
an external Visiting Committee to the School of 
Education; and that the Board of Trustees concur 
in the appointment by the President of the 
members of said committee, all as outlined in 
Trustee Document T75-086. 

Noting that the visiting committee is to concern itself 
solely with the academic aspects of the School of Education, Presi- 
dent Wood also addressed the administrative side of the problem. 

He said that the University had endeavored from the 
beginning to make public as much information as possible, including 
the release of his memorandum of February 19 to the Chairman. On 
the issue which he said had arisen in the press with regard to the 
availability of records, the President disclosed that Mr. Searson, 
University General Counsel, had communicated with the Boston office 
of the F.B.I, and had confirmed an understanding arrived at 
February 5 concerning the confidentiality of the records. 

The President also said that Treasurer Johnson had been 
issued a subpoena on behalf of the Grand Jury in Boston directing 
him to appear with the records on March 6. He added that, although 
he regretted that the University could not make these records 
public, it would continue to make public as much information as 
possible. He observed that Treasurer Johnson had no alternative 
but to comply with the subpoena. 

The President next called upon Chancellor Bromery of 
the Amherst campus. Chancellor Bromery told the Board that Pro- 
fessor Louis Fischer had taken over as Acting Dean of the School 
of Education, and that the faculty had rallied to his leadership. 
He expressed welcome to the visiting committee on behalf of 
Acting Dean Fischer and the faculty and said the campus would 
cooperate fully with their activities. 

Chairman Healey stated at this point his appreciation 
for the vigorous and effective way Chancellor Bromery had acted 
in the previous weeks to clarify issues and stabilize the situation. 
He welcomed the appointment of an acting dean from within the 
School whose leadership, with the support of the administration, 
would be essential in the transitional period. 

The Chairman observed that the Trustees are responsible 
for maintaining high academic quality as well as general integrity 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

while defending the institution against "indiscriminate attacks." 
In this role, he said he felt certain the other Board members 
joined with him in welcoming the creation of the distinguished 
Visiting Committee, and said the Board, the University, and the 
public can have confidence in its assessment. He added that the 
Committee may well make a major contribution to the national debate 
on teacher education and the future course of schools of education. 
He also informed the Board that he had asked Trustees Anrig, 
Breyer, and Troy to keep the Board abreast of the Committee's 
findings by means of regular reports. 

Continuing the Presidential agenda, President Wood called 
on Chancellor Golino of the Boston Campus. Chancellor Golino 
announced the formal opening of a Bicentennial exhibit at the 
Downtown Center at 100 Arlington Street to which, he said, the 
Trustees would each receive invitations. He said the Boston 
campus's Bicentennial Committee had come up with the idea that all 
Bicentennial activities be dedicated to American Folk Art. He 
invited all present to view the exhibit and expressed his applica- 
tion to the Trustees and the President for making available the 
resources which had made the exhibit possible. 

President Wood asked Acting Dean Butcher of the Worcester 
Campus to speak to the Board. Acting Dean Butcher seconded the 
President's remarks about Chancellor Soutter. He said the Medical 
School was striving, under the direction of the Board, for the 
opening of the teaching hospital and the development of the 
clinical faculty to full size. 

He said the morale of the faculty and students was high, 
but mentioned what he saw as one serious problem: with the develop- 
ment of the faculty and the opening of the teaching hospital, con- 
tinued fractionalization of the budget would have a very serious 
effect on the continued effectiveness of the Medical Center. 

The Chairman then asked for the reports of the Standing 
Committees. He called first on the Budget Committee and Chairman 
Carlson. 

Chairman Carlson reported that the Budget Committee had, 
at its February meeting, focused on the difficulty of making a 
budget in the face of uncertainties about what the new administra- 
tion would recommend for the coming fiscal year. He called this 
one of the most critical issues the University currently faces. 

In view of worsening economic conditions, said Chairman 
Carlson, it is apparent that the University will have to reduce its 
expenditures in every possible way without sacrificing the quality 
of its programs. 

The Committee had focused also on the relationship 
between budget planning and long-range planning with a view toward 
developing alternative strategies for the next three to five years.

He informed the Board that the Committee had heard a 
detailed report on austerity measures being taken on all campuses, 
and said the details of the measures could be found in the minutes. 
He stressed that a major effort was under way to save funds: in all 
parts of the University. 

Chairman Carlson next cited the matter of Worcester 
Campus State Fund Transfers (Doc. T75-082) . The items contained 
in the document, he said, were the result of a midyear review by 
the campus. There being no discussion, and a motion having been 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve revisions to the FY 1975 Operating 

Budget for UM/Worcester , as contained in Trustee 
Document T75-082. 

Next came the report of the Trustee Committee on Finance. 
Chairman Gordon told the Board that the Committee had heard a 
report from the University's investment counsel, Mr. John Wood. 
He said Mr. Wood had made no recommendations for action, but the 
Committee had felt his frequent presence and reports to be 
essential in view of the volatility of the stock market and the 
instability of the economy. 

Next the Committee had heard what Chairman Gordon 
described as an "excellent, articulate" petition from four Amherst 
married students on the subject of rent grievances. The Committee 
felt — and the campus administrators had agreed — that there may 
have been miscommunication at the campus level. Chancellor Bromery 
had proposed that a reconciliation of the allegations of the 
petitioners, together with University documentation, be assembled 
as soon as possible for the Committee's further consideration. 
The Committee had promised the students it would give their 
grievances careful consideration when it received all the 
information. 

Next the Committee entered into an executive session to 
hear Treasurer Johnson's report on the audit being conducted of the 
School of Education. 

After the executive session, Treasurer Johnson had 
reported that the firm of Marsh and MacLennan had made the most 
favorable bid in response to the specifications for comprehensive 
liability insurance sent out for bid by the University's insurance 
consultant, Mr. Joseph Albert. Chairman Gordon reported that they 
had asked for a broker-of-record letter designating them sole rep- 
resentative of the University in negotiations with insurance 
companies. Treasurer Johnson was authorized to execute the letter 
under authority of a prior vote of the Trustees on February 5, 1975, 
and Chairman Gordon emphasized that it entailed no monetary com- 
mitment on the University's part.

The final matter on the Committee's agenda was a proposed 
Ohio Land Sale (Doc. T75-085) . Failing a quorum due to the late 
hour, the Committee had reconvened before the Board meeting, but 
had decided to defer any action pending submission of additional 
information requested by members of the Committee. 

Chairman Healey called next on Chairman Rowland to give 
the report of the Committee on Long-Range Planning. Chairman 
Rowland reported to the Board that the Committee had continued its 
discussion of enrollment planning and the campuses' five-year 
plans, with particular emphasis on the Amherst campus. Chancellor 
Bromery had agreed to provide certain important information which 
will be discussed at the Committee's next meeting. 

The Committee then heard a report on changes in the 
profile of applicants to the Amherst campus since 1971 from Mr. 
Cooley, Assistant Vice President for Analytical Studies. 

Chancellor Golino had expressed his view of the impor- 
tance of policy guidelines for the overall direction of the Boston 
Campus, and several Trustees expressed interest in the Chancellor's 
leadership in this area. 

The Committee had also discussed, said Chairman Rowland, 
the important links between the Committees on Budget, Long-Range 
Planning, and Faculty and Educational Policy. She said she felt 
the Committee on Long-Range Planning would be strengthened both 
by the new Chairmanship of Trustee Carlson on the Budget Committee, 
and the addition to her Committee of Trustees Clark and Weldon. 

The Chairman called upon Trustee Knowles, Delegate to 
the Board of Higher Education, for her report. Trustee Knowles 
described several actions taken at the February 21st meeting, 
including approval of three new academic programs at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst: Stage I Planning Approval was given 
for a B.S. Program in Environmental Sciences, and Stage II Program 
Approval was given to an M.S. in Manufacturing Engineering and an 
M.S. in Hotel, Restaurant and Travel Administration. 

There was no other business to come before the Board at 
this meeting. Accordingly, the Chairman declared the meeting 
adjourned at 3:00 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
March 5, 1975. 

Chairman Healey called upon the President. President 
Wood reported on three matters: the summit meeting on higher 
education proposed by state Senate President Harrington, the ongoing 
deliberations of the Faculty and Educational Policy Committee on 
tenure appointments, and the so-called Hay Study of executive 
compensation within the University. 

On the summit, President Wood cited an exchange of letters 
between Senator Harrington and himself. Senator Harrington's 
letter had observed that as much as 90 percent of the membership 
of the present Legislature was unfamiliar with the history and 
necessity of fiscal autonomy for public higher education. He had 
disparaged guerrilla warfare on the issue and had proposed a 
meeting to include Trustees, chief executives of public higher 
education and leaders in the legislative and executive branches of 
state government to address this and other fundamental issues of 
public higher education. President Wood informed the Trustees 
that he had asked Father Walsh, his Academic Advisor, to coordinate 
the planning of this important meeting. 

On the subject of tenure, the President reminded the 
Trustees that they would be called upon at the May meeting to con- 
cur in his appointments to tenure. He said that the process of 
awarding and concurring in tenure is one of the President's and 
the Board of Trustees' most important acts, and said its responsible 
use is made possible by fiscal autonomy. 

President Wood reviewed for the Trustees some of the 
criteria used and responsibilities considered in the award of 
tenure. The award of tenure, he said, is a positive act which 
must be clearly justified on the basis of individual achievement 
and promise in teaching, scholarship, and service. The award 
must also be justified with respect to the needs of the University. 

The faculty has the primary responsibility to subject 
each candidate to peer review, and each campus-level administrative 
level must review the faculty's initial recommendation. It is the 
central responsibility of the President to review the strength of 
the justification as to need and merit, giving due weight to peer 
reviews and the recommendations of the administrative officials. 
He added that the President must satisfy himself of the strength 
and justification of every candidacy. 

President Wood informed the Trustees that he would soon 
be visiting the campuses to clarify any uncertainties which may 
have arisen about the relationship between judgments on tenure 
and the campus five-year plans.

Turning to the Hay Study, President Wood recalled that 
this was a study of executive compensation and the organization 
of administrative resources within the University. He reported 
that the study had reached draft form on recommendations with 
respect to issues of salary and compensation and organizational 
effectiveness in budgeting, planning, academic affairs, and 
organization and management. 

He told the Trustees that he expected to make a public 
announcement before the next Board meeting about the position of 
the University in these matters in comparison with similar multi- 
campus universities. Reviews of the data both by himself and the 
Trustee Executive Committee had revealed, he said, that the 
University's overall salary schedule for administrators is con- 
servative when compared with other universities of its size and 
scale. 

Following the President's report, the Chairman recognized 
Trustee Rowland, whose statement follows: 

"I share the urgency expressed by the President regarding 
the latest chapter in the struggle over fiscal autonomy. Since the 
issue has been relatively quiet in recent years, some of the newer 
Trustees may not realize its seriousness. As the few Trustees 
whose service dates from 1961 know even better than I, fiscal 
autonomy is critical to the present quality and character of the 
University. It is not simply an administrative convenience. 

"I would like to put on the record, Mr. Chairman, that if 
fiscal autonomy goes, so do I. But I won't go quietly. 

"I am interested in working with the University because 
of its great potential for educational quality and broad state 
service. This potential is directly dependent on the particular 
independence that autonomy confers. 

"I fully support the President both in his defense of 
fiscal autonomy and in his work with the Senate leadership on a 
statewide review of the organization and future development of all 
public higher education." 

The President informed the Trustees that copies would be 
available later in the meeting of his second report to the Trustees 
of the progress of the audit of the School of Education. He said 
he had had the cooperation of Chancellor Bromery and Treasurer 
Johnson in making this report, and hoped to make a final report on 
the matter as soon as law enforcement agencies released the 
necessary records for study. 

Finally, President Wood reminded the Trustees that he 
had expressed the intention at the Board's last meeting to 
recommend action to suitably recognize the contributions of 
former Chancellor Lamar Soutter to the development of the Worcester 



I 



I 



! 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Medical Center. In this connection, the recommendation of the 
Buildings and Grounds Committee would be reported later in the 
meeting. In addition, he proposed a vote further designed to 
accomplish this purpose. Upon a motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To concur in President Wood's award to Dr. Lamar 
Soutter of the honorary title of Dean Emeritus 
and Professor of Surgery Emeritus, effective 
April 6, 1975, in recognition of his dedicated 
and outstanding leadership as the first Dean of 
the University of Massachusetts Medical School 
at Worcester. 

The President called on the two Chancellors and the 
Acting Dean of the Medical School to make their reports to the 
Trustees. 

Chancellor Bromery of the Amherst campus informed the 
Trustees that Robert L. Gluckstern, Vice Chancellor for Academic 
Affairs and Provost, was leaving the University to become Chan- 
cellor of the University of Maryland at College Park, and said 
that he was presently consulting the deans and governance bodies 
on the campus to determine a procedure for replacing him. 

Chancellor Bromery said that he and Mr. Gluckstern had 
worked together when they were fellow chairmen of different depart- 
ments within the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, 
later as Vice Chancellors, and recently as Chancellor and Provost. 
He observed that Mr. Gluckstern would be sorely missed, and added 
that if his salary were to be divided by his working hours, his 
hourly pay rate would prove to be the smallest on the campus. 

The Chancellor said he understood that the Trustees had 
received material by mail about a proposed universal resource fee 
on the Amherst campus. This proposal, he said, would continue to 
be discussed on the campus, along with ways to more equitably 
manage the residence halls and dining commons. He pointed out that 
residence halls, dining commons, married students housing, and the 
campus center must be self-liquidating, and hence their cost must 
be passed along to the students. In light of this, the cost of 
attending the University has risen though tuition has remained 
fixed. 

He stressed the necessity of keeping down the cost of 
these fee-based enterprises, while at the same time working to 
more equitably distribute the burden they impose on the students. 
Discussions on these matters, the Chancellor said, would continue 
with the Student Government Association through the semester and 
coming summer in an effort to come up with long-range plans by the 
end of the fall 1975 semester to present to the Trustees.

Chancellor Golino of the Boston campus reported to the Trustees 
that the Boston campus had recently received a $100,000 grant for 
a program called "Another Course to College." Working with three 
Boston high schools, the program would try to identify those 
students who, in their junior year, had decided that the option 
of college was closed, and try to convince them that it was not. 
The students would attend a series of courses at the University in 
their junior and senior years, at the end of which they would be 
assured of entry into the Boston campus or given assistance in 
entering another college. 

The program was expected to include one hundred students 
in its first year and two hundred the year after. If successful, 
he said, it was hoped that the number would be increased tio 350 
or 400 with financing from the City of Boston and other sources. 
The Chancellor said the program had entailed close cooperation 
between the University and the Boston schools. 

Acting Dean Butcher of the Worcester campus reported 
that the Medical School staff was extremely busy preparing for the 
opening of the teaching hospital and for an increase of the student 
body to one hundred students in the freshman class. Active recruit- 
ment of clinical faculty and key service department heads was pro- 
ceeding, as was the purchase of equipment and the development of 
procedures for practice to be presented to the Trustees for their 
approval in time for the opening of the hospital. 

After the President's report, Chairman Healey said he 
wished to second Trustee Rowland on the subject of fiscal autonomy 
and the future of the University. The nineteen-sixties were gone, 
he said, along with the plentiful resources that went with them. 
In light of the present, tighter fiscal conditions it was necessary 
in his view, for all members of the University community to focus 
on the essential issue of continued quality in the state university 

He said he had heard petty criticism of the President, 
including remarks about the expense of the Boston office, and 
pointed out that the most important thing to remember was that the 
press referred to Dr. Wood as "the most powerful spokesman for 
public higher education in the Commonwealth." He had been close 
to the President's efforts over the past five years, as well as to 
occasions in the Legislature when attempts had been made to cut 
back the University's budget. These attempts had failed, said 
the Chairman, largely through the efforts of President Wood. 

The Chairman reminded the Trustees that a 1962 blue- 
ribbon commission composed of the presidents of all the large 
private institutions in the Commonwealth had advised the Trustees 
that the only way to assure the University's quality was to remove 
it from the political arena — to give it fiscal autonomy. A rider 
on a recent bill which had attempted to take away this autonomy, 
said Chairman Healey, was only the beginning, and he said again 
that the University community must stand united to ensure that the 
University goes forward on a quality basis. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Turning to the report of the Executive Committee, the 
Chairman called on Father Walsh to comment on the Review of the 
University Governance Statement (Docs. T73-098, T75-099) . 

Father Walsh informed the Trustees that when the Governanc 
Statement was adopted in 1973, the Trustees provided that it be 
reviewed two years later. The President had asked him to initiate 
and conduct this review, and pursuant to so doing he had called 
together a University-wide committee composed of students, faculty, 
and administrators. This committee had met and agreed that, while 
there were ambiguities in the document, most of the problems which 
had been encountered in its use had been of a campus nature, and 
should be solved by campus-level, rather than University-level, 
action. The one change which the Committee had voted to recommend 
to the Board was to amend Section II. D. 3 to change the word "days" 
to "working days." 

Trustee Savini stated his belief that the changes pro- 
posed made the period for review of policy recommendations too 
long, and he stated his intention to vote against the proposal. 
Ms. Flannery, representing Trustee Bicknell, abstained from the 
vote. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That Part II. D. 3 of Document T73-098 be amended 
as follows: 

The Chancellor, the President, and the 
Board of Trustees may approve recommendations 
from the campus governing bodies at any time. 
Subject to precedents established by components 
of each campus and/or the restraints and pro- 
cedures specified in their constitutions and 
in accordance with the preceding statements of 
primary responsibility (Section I.B. of this 
statement) , recommendations adopted by the 
campus will become policy unless (1) disapproved 
or sent back for reconsideration by the 
Chancellor within twenty working days of 
receipt of notification from the governing 
body; (2) disapproved, sent back for recon- 
sideration, or deferred by the President 
within twenty working days of receipt of 
notification of the Chancellor's approval or 
within twenty working days following the 
expiration of the twenty-day period for the 
Chancellor's consideration; (3) disapproved 
by the President during a special thirty 
working day deferral period (if the President 
chooses to defer his decision he will notify 
the governing body; the deferral period will 
begin at the end of the President's initial 
twenty working day period of consideration) ;

the title of position subject to; subsequently 
being amended, revised, added to or repealed

Ms. Flannery described the importance of the position of 
Director of Nursing to the quality of nursing care in a hospital, 
and expressed the hope that the salary ranges for this and other 
positions were sufficient to attract a high level of talent. 
Acting Dean Butcher agreed strongly with Ms. Flannery and assured 
the Trustees that the salary ranges contemplated were adequate. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Chairman next called on Trustee Troy to present the 
report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. Trustee 
Troy reported that the Committee had met on March 19 to consider 
tenure appointments. President Wood and Vice President Lynton 
had spoken to the Committee, not only affirming the basic criteria 
to be followed in the award of tenure — teaching, scholarship, and 
service — but strongly articulating the need for tenure decisions 
to mesh with the long-term plans of the departments, schools and 
colleges, and the campuses. 

It had been stressed at the meeting that when too many 
faculty members become tenured on a campus, the capacity to adjust 
to changing circumstances and the desire to be receptive to rising 
generations of teachers and scholars may be jeopardized. Trustee 
Troy observed that there appeared not to be adequate understanding 
of the principle of institutional need, which he said had always 
been implicit, if not always strictly enforced. He read from the 
1972 Trustee vote which had established that tenure decisions must 
be "considered in the context of the overall needs and long-range 
plans of the department, the school or college, and the campus as 
a whole. " 

Trustee Troy reported also that discussion at the meeting 
had revealed the importance of academic planning on the Boston 
campus in light of the need to achieve complementarity between the 
four colleges. After giving further examples of kinds of planning 
required on the campuses, Trustee Troy reiterated that tenure and 
planning must be intimately connected on every level. 

The Committee had gone into executive session to discuss 
particular tenure cases, and it had been agreed that, since all the 
campus tenure recommendations could not be considered that day, the 
Committee would wait until its April meeting to vote on the Presi- 
dent's appointments. After this executive session, the Committee 
turned to several new appointments with tenure. The first was a 
New Appointment with Tenure — UM/ Amherst (Doc. T75-090) . After 
motion was made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To concur with the proposed appointment with 

tenure of Robert H. Graham as Professor of Com- 
puter and Information Science at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst, as contained in 
Doc. T75-090. 

This was followed by three New Appointments with Tenure — 
UM/Boston (Doc. T75-087). A motion was made and seconded, and it 
was 

VOTED : To concur with the following appointments with 

tenure in the Management Program of the College of 
Professional Studies of the University of Massachu- 
setts at Boston: Dr. Shirley M. Arbesfeld, as

Trustee Troy turned the Trustees' attention to a recom- 
mendation with respect to the Academic Organization of the Medical 
School (Doc. T75-092) : the creation of a Department of Pediatrics. 
Trustee Gordon asked whether the Medical School Visiting Committee 
had made a contribution to this proposal. Acting Dean Butcher 
said that it had not, to his knowledge, because a Department of 
Pediatrics was a sine qua non of a Medical School. President Wood 
stated the view that the Visiting Committee would certainly view 
such a step as appropriate at this time. 

Ms. Flannery reiterated a point which she said she had 
made at the Committee meeting, that the proposed Department of 
Pediatrics be an innovatively, rather than classically, structured 
department; that it be closely tied in with the Departments of 
Community Medicine and Family Practice; and that it be closely 
involved with child developmental problems. The vote was moved, 
seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To establish a Department of Pediatrics at the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School, as 
set forth in Doc. T75-092. 

The Committee had next considered two New Appointments 
with Tenure — UM/Worcester (Docs. T75-093, T75-094) . A motion was 
made and seconded, and it was 



VOTED : 



and it was 



VOTED : 



To concur with the proposed appointment with 
tenure of Dr. Lewis E. Braverman as Professor 
of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School, as set forth in Doc. T75-093. 



To concur with the proposed appointment with 
tenure of Dr. James B. Hanshaw as Professor 
of Pediatrics at the University of Massachu- 
setts Medical School, as set forth in Doc. 
T75-094. 



Trustee Gordon asked if it was possible to say how many appointments 
of department chairmen were contemplated before the appointment of 
a new dean. Dr. Butcher replied that the answer depended on several 
variables, but estimated at most four. He pointed out that the 
appointments of Dr. Braverman and Dr. Hanshaw had been recommended 
by former Chancellor Soutter. 

Completing his report, Trustee Troy informed the Trustees 
that his Committee had heard a report from the Amherst campus on 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the Institute for Man and Environment. The Institute had had 
certain problems when it began, he said, due primarily to difficulty 
in focus. Since then it had had a change in leadership and, under 
Dr. Zube, had come to stress interdisciplinary cooperation and a 
combination of scholarship and public service. 

The Chairman called next on Trustee Shaler for the report 
of the Committee on Student Affairs. Trustee Shaler reported that 
the Committee's first matter of business had been a discussion of 
the Residence Hall Counseling Program on the Amherst campus. A 
detailed written report had been submitted to the Committee. 
Trustee Shaler said the Committee had been most favorably impressed 
by the extent of the program and most particularly by its emphasis 
on outreach. Polls and surveys had been conducted to ascertain 
students' attitudes toward the program, and these had confirmed the 
students' belief that the best way to reach students was through 
other students. Trustee Shaler recommended that all Trustees 
read this report. 

The Committee had also focused on the related matter of 
a proposed amendment to the University of Massachusetts Tuition 
Waiver Policies (Doc. T75-075B) . The proposed amendment would 
abolish tuition waivers for the residence hall counselors on the 
grounds that, while their services were admirable and vital, this 
means of compensation was not appropriate. Trustee Shaler said 
the reason cited was that other students employed by the University 
were not receiving such waivers, yet could understandably expect 
them if this category of student employees received the benefit. 
After motion was made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the University of Massachusetts Tuition 
Waiver Policies (Trustee Doc. T75-075B) be 
amended by inserting after section 3.4 the 
following new section: 

3.5 Tuition Waivers for Residence Counselors . 

Tuition waivers for residence counselors are 
abolished effective July 1, 1975. 

However, mindful of the vital contribution of the 
residence hall counselors, following motion made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : To express strong support for the residence hall 
counseling program, and express the hope that, 
as soon as possible, alternative means of sup- 
porting such counselors be developed. 

Mr. Tubbs, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at UM/ 
Boston, had presented a report on the Student Affairs Division, 
Trustee Shaler noted. Mr. Tubbs had mentioned in his report the

historically low priority which the Student Affairs Divison had 
had on the Boston campus. In presenting his report, Mr. Tubbs 
had made the remark that not only was there reason for pessimism 
about chances for augmenting the Student Affairs staff, but there 
was the danger that the staff might shrink. He had explained that 
this was possible because the University-wide hiring freeze made 
it impossible to replace Student Affairs vacancies. 

Trustee Shaler had observed that, at a recent meeting 
of the Student Affairs Committee, the Amherst campus had explained 
the ways in which it had fulfilled the Committee's mandate for 
change by reallocating its present staff. He had asked Mr. Tubbs 
to present a report to the Committee at its next meeting, reflecting 
a thorough examination of the Student Affairs staff and proposals 
for staffing reassignments as well as a report on the possible 
reallocation of counseling positions to admissions or other areas. 

Finally, Trustee Shaler informed the Trustees that Dr. 
Edgar Smith, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Provost of 
the Worcester campus, had spoken to the Committee on the subject 
of financial aid to medical students. Dr. Smith had informed the 
Committee that, due to former Chancellor Soutter's sudden retire- 
ment, the report which had been promised was not ready. He added, 
however, that the report would be ready for the April meeting of 
the Committee. 

Chairman Healey next called on Trustee Gordon to give 
the report of the Committee on Finance. Trustee Gordon turned 
first to the Petition of Amherst Married Students. He recalled 
that a group of residents of married students housing had pre- 
sented a well-reasoned report at the Committee's February meeting 
asking for a rent rollback. The Committee had felt that there 
had been insufficient dialogue on the campus between the students 
and the representatives of the University, and had asked that both 
sides sit down again to discuss these matters further. 

At the March meeting of the Committee, Chancellor Bromery 
had reported that each of the allegations made by the students at 
the February meeting had been discussed again with them, and 
recommended that the Committee deny their request for a rent roll- 
back. The Committee, Trustee Gordon said, had been satisfied with 
the Chancellor's report and had voted to not recommend a rent 
rollback. 

Trustee Gordon informed the Trustees that representatives 
of the students had asked to speak to the full Board, and he called 
on them to make their remarks at this time. Ms. Karen Forsgard 
made a presentation on behalf of the students. In her prepared 
remarks, Ms. Forsgard called the Finance Committee's recommendation 
unjust because the further discussions between the students and 
the University directed by the Committee had never occurred, she 
said, and because the Committee had acted without informing the 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

students of the meeting and on the basis of information from the 
University to which the students had been unable to contribute. 

Ms. Forsgard reiterated allegations originally made to the 
Finance Committee at its February meeting, that the increases in 
rent voted by the Trustees on June 5, 1974, had been illegal and 
were a reflection of administrative mismanagement. 

Chairman Healey asked Ms . Forsgard whether all the per- 
tinent information had been provided to the Committee on Finance. 
She replied that certain, more complete information had been sent, 
but that it had arrived after the Committee had already voted to 
recommend no rollback. 

Trustee Carlson asked if the Finance Committee had per- 
sonally studied the information presented to it, or had relied upon 
the campus's recommendation. Trustee Gordon answered that the 
Committee had studied most of the materials, but that some had 
arrived after the meeting. Dr. Gage stated that there had been a 
meeting with the students after the February meeting of the 
Finance Committee which had dealt primarily with vacancy rates and 
budgetary matters. He disputed certain of the figures and allega- 
tions made by Ms. Forsgard. 

Chairman Healey observed that the Board of Trustees 
handles its business by means of the standing committees, which 
encourage input from all interested parties. The Board will not 
usually go against the judgment of its Committee unless its judgment 
is obviously wrong or unless the information it received was 
incomplete or insufficient. He added, however, that he was con- 
cerned about the allegation that the students had not had an 
opportunity to present additional information on their case, and 
that if this were so he would advocate that the Committee restudy 
the matter. 

Trustee Gordon suggested a joint meeting of the Committees 
on Student Affairs and Finance to study the matter, and strongly 
urged both the UM/Amherst administration and the students to get 
all of their data together and to agree on an agenda before the 
meeting is held. Chairman Healey reiterated that the issue of a 
rent rollback was separate from that of the students ' proposal for 
a cooperative management system for married students housing, and 
instructed the administration and students to get together before 
the meeting and narrow the issue as much as possible. 

Trustee Gordon turned to the next item of the Finance 
Committee report, proposed University-wide General Liability 
Insurance (Doc. T75-101) . He said that Mr. Joseph Albert, the 
Board's insurance advisor, had succeeded in negotiating a program in 
substantial conformance with what the Committee had sought. He 
informed the Trustees that Mr. Albert was continuing negotiations 
with insurance companies through the University's broker of record,

Marsh and McLennan, to secure coverage for certain minor, outstand- 
ing areas of coverage. He expressed the Committee's satisfaction 
at the success so far achieved in developing this insurance pro- 
gram. 

After a motion was made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the University insurance advisor, 
Mr. Joseph H. Albert, to finalize an agreement 
for a University-wide general liability insur- 
ance program at a cost not to exceed that 
contained in Doc. T75-101, subject to the 
approval of University General Counsel and 
the Treasurer. 

Trustee Gordon moved to the UM/Worcester Insurance Pro- 
gram (Doc. T75-097) . He reported that Mr. Albert had presented 
an interim proposal for insurance to cover the Medical School plus 
all personnel and students, excluding doctors. Trustee Gordon 
stressed the difficulty of obtaining such insurance in the present 
state of the market, and said the matter of insuring the doctors 
themselves would be raised at a later date. Upon a motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Joseph H. Albert, in consultation 
with the Acting Dean of the Medical School, to 
commence negotiations to obtain an insurance 
program for the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester as outlined in Trustee Document T75- 
097; provided, however, that no insurance shall 
be purchased without the prior approval of the 
Board of Trustees. 

The Finance Committee, reported Trustee Gordon, dealt 
briefly with the proposed sale of land bequeathed to the University 
by the late Murray D. Lincoln. Members of the Committee had not 
had sufficient time to study the matter, and had decided therefore 
not to vote. It had been agreed, however, that the representatives 
of the prospective purchaser should come to Massachusetts to dis- 
cuss the proposed sale further. 

Next, the Committee had discussed a proposed vote to 
authorize the invitation of bids for the purpose of providing 
banking services on the Worcester campus. It had been Trustee 
Spiller's feeling that such an action would be premature, and 
he had suggested that the matter be tabled and discussed at a 
later date. It was so agreed. 

Trustee Gordon reported that the President had addressed 
the matter of Policy Guidelines for the Administration of Grants 
and Contracts. He had said that in February 1975 the Treasurer 
had provided a draft of such guidelines which had been reviewed by 



" 



• 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the campuses, and had added that he expected to implement the guide- 
lines in two stages: first to handle grants for academic programs 
which come from the federal government or philanthropic institu- 
tions, and next to handle contracts and leases of an administrative 
nature. A motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To take note of the action of the President in 
the establishment of policy guidelines, organi- 
zational arrangements and administrative pro- 
cedures governing academic program contracts 
and grants, involving research, service, and 
training activities; that it concur in the same, 
and ask that their implementation receive the 
highest priority on all campuses. 

Finally, the Finance Committee had entered an executive 
session to hear a report on the status of the audit of the School 
of Education at UM/Amherst. Trustee Gordon said the Committee was 
thoroughly satisfied with the way matters had been handled thus 
far. He added that the international accounting firm of Coopers & 
Lybrand had been retained to conduct an outside audit of the School 
of Education and to review the administrative procedures of the 
University campus at Amherst as a whole. The Board will be informed 
of the final contract with Coopers & Lybrand at a later date. 

Chairman Healey next turned the meeting to the report of 
the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. Speaking for Trustee 
Knowles, chairman of the Committee, Trustee Spiller reported that 
the Committee had met and discussed the naming of buildings. The 
Committee had asked the Chancellors to provide the Committee with 
their suggestions for names at a subsequent meeting. 

The Committee had also discussed site development at the 
Worcester campus and a presentation by Mr. Littlefield of the 
Amherst campus for improvements in that campus's movement systems. 

Trustee Spiller reported that the Committee wished to 
recommend that the Library of the Worcester campus be named for 
former Chancellor Soutter. There was no objection, and after a 
motion was made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Library in the Medical Science Build- 
ing at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester be named for Dr. Lamar Soutter, 
former Chancellor and Dean of the Medical 
School. 

The next item on the agenda was two Personnel Actions 
for UM/Worcester (Docs. T75-102, T75-100) . Upon motions made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the prospective appointment and terms 
of employment as set forth in Trustee Document

documents necessary for the implementation of

and salary adjustment, UM/Worcester , as detailed 

in Doc. T75-100. 



It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject 
to the policies and procedures now in effect 
as subsequently amended, revised, added to or 
repealed by the Board o f Trustees with respect 
to professional personnel under the provisions 
of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended 
by Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962. The class- 
ification, salary range and descriptive job 
specification for each position to which a 
member of the professional staff is hereby 
appointed, promoted, transferred or determined 
shall be as hereafter determined by the Board 
of Trustees or under their authority. 

The Chairman told the Trustees that Trustee Knowles was 
absent and that therefore the report of the Delegate to the Board 
of Higher Education would not be given orally. He pointed out that 
copies of the report had been circulated to the Board beforehand. 

Chairman Healey called on Trustee Savini, who stated his 
belief that students were as concerned about budget cuts in the 
University as the administration, because they would bear the 
impact of such cuts. It is obvious, he said, that the 10 percent 
budget cut proposed by the Secretary of Educational Affairs would 
affect the quality of programs, claims to the contrary notwith- 
standing. 

He praised the University, but said that its many prob- 
lems should be addressed cooperatively by Trustees, administration, 
faculty, and students, working together as equals. In so doing, 
he said, the problems could be addressed successfully and prevented 
from spreading beyond the University. 

Trustee Savini said the Trustees should remember that 
students have a great interest in the University, inside and out- 
side the classroom, and that they have spent much to attend it. 
Following these remarks, he asked that Mr. Matthew Burns, a student, 
be recognized to read a prepared statement. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Chairman called on Mr. Burns, who outlined what he 
felt to be the students' viewpoint about austerity in the Univer- 
sity. He conceded the need for cutbacks in higher education, but 
hoped that this could be achieved without endangering academic 
programs. He expressed the opposition of the students to any change 
in fiscal autonomy and said that education "should be left with 
educators." 

Mr. Burns spoke of the rising cost of higher education 
to students, specifically citing tuition and mandatory student 
fees. He said that students could not support some of the contem- 
plated rises, and stated the belief that mismanagement in Student 
Affairs, not inflation, was actually at fault. He stated that 
students are, for the most part, adults able to vote and sign 
contracts, and that they wish to be listened to like responsible 
adults. Mr. Burns appealed to all parts of the campus community 
to unite to reach practical solutions "via total utilization of 
all our available human resources." He said, finally, that all 
should work together to insure that education of high quality be 
available to all persons, not only to those of high economic 
standing. 

Chairman Healey next recognized Mr. Peter Donahue, 
another student, who made a statement opposing cuts and advocating 
an increase in the University budget. He informed the Trustees 
that his organization, the Coalition for a Peoples' Budget, 
planned a rally and demonstration on the Amherst campus April 15 
in support of these objectives, and he requested that the Trustees 
affirm and take part in the demonstration. 

The Chairman stated that every member of the Board of 
Trustees had a vital concern for the welfare of higher education. 
He said that he had sat on the Board for sixteen years and had 
seen the University grow from practially nothing to what it was 
today. There was no commitment to higher education, he said, 
greater than the Board's, and he said its concern had been for 
the students of the past and future as well as for those of the 
present . 

He urged the students to make a planned and concerted 
effort to make their case to the Governor and the members of the 
Legislature, to support the efforts of the President, and not to 
simply confine their efforts to demonstrating on the Amherst 
campus. 

Trustee Shaler indicated his intention to attend the 
planning meeting which the students were to hold in advance of 
the rally. 

There was no further business to come before the Trustees 
and the meeting was declared adjourned at 4:15 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees present 
and acting throughout, the meeting was convened at 2:25 p.m. 
Chairman Healey welcomed two new ex officio Trustees, Nancy B. Eddy 
as Chairman of the Amherst Board of Selectmen and Frederic Winthrop, 
Jr. as Commissioner of Agriculture. He expressed the Board's 
thanks and admiration for their respective predecessors, Michael P. 
Sullivan and Nathan Chandler. This was also the final meeting for 
the student Trustees, Kathryn Steed from the Boston campus and 
Richard Savini from the Amherst campus. The Chairman observed 
that in the several years he had worked with student Trustees, he 
had always found their presence to be helpful. The only unfor- 
tunate thing, he said, was that they served for only one year and 
left the Board about the time they were getting a good grasp of 
the overall problems of the University. 

Trustees Savini and Steed jointly expressed their 
satisfaction with their experience. Though not always in agreement 
with the Board's actions, they said, they found the experience 
valuable. The two new student Trustees were introduced, John 
O'Keefe from the Amherst campus and Cary Rothenburger from the 
Boston campus. Chairman Healey pointed out that due to the close- 
ness of the election results for the Presidency of the Amherst 
Student Government Association, it was John O'Keefe's intention to 
call for a referendum for the position in the fall. 

The minutes of the previous meeting were presented for 
amendment or correction and, there being none, it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of 
April 2, 1975. 

Chairman Healey informed the Board of the death on April 2 
of Robert J. McCartney, former Secretary of the University and 
later Assistant to the President for Liaison Service. Citing the 
long and distinguished service Mr. McCartney had given to the 
University, the Chairman proposed that the Board instruct the 
President to draft an appropriate resolution expressing the Board's 
sense of loss and appreciation to Mr. McCartney's family. Upon a 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That it is the sense of the meeting that the 

President be directed to draft a resolution to 
be addressed to the family of Robert J. 
McCartney which will convey the deep loss which 
the Board feels at his death, and which will 
express its equal appreciation for his many years 
of service to the University. 

The President expressed his agreement with the sentiments 
of the Board, and added that Mr. McCartney had served him and the 
University with fidelity and friendship since 1970.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The President mentioned the article in the current issue 
of Atlantic Magazine by President Silber of Boston University, 
which had expressed certain views on higher education in the 
Commonwealth. He said that Ian Menzies of the Boston Globe had 
amply answered President Silber the following week. 

On the constructive side of public-private relations, 
said the President, a meeting of the Public/Private Forum had taken 
place in Worcester which included among its guests, Trustees of 
both public and private institutions of higher education. 
Commissioner Hollander had spoken at this meeting among others 
including Father Walsh, and had stressed the dangers of divisive, 
public strife between different institutions of higher education. 
Those Trustees who had attended this meeting, the President said, 
came away with a great appreciation for the importance of construc- 
tive cooperation among public and private higher education insti- 
tutions. The President cited the five-college relationship at 
Amherst, the Worcester Consortium, and the common efforts of the 
universities and colleges in assisting the Boston schools as 
examples of the positive aspects of public-private relations. He 
added that institutions of higher learning are too" much a part of 
this country to afford divisive public controversies. 

The President also called attention to the so-called 
summit meeting on higher education, called by Senate President 
Harrington, which had met the previous Saturday. He said the 
meeting had addressed issues of budget, performance and productivity 
and fiscal autonomy. He remarked that the criticism of excessive 
administration is difficult to answer, but mentioned again the Hay 
study's finding that the University was near or below the line for 
universities of its size in administrative salaries. He also 
said he did not have a helicopter, referring to a recent statement 
by the Governor on the Amherst campus. 

President Wood went on to congratulate the campuses on the 
success of their austerity efforts, observing that they had saved 
$3.8 million at considerable sacrifice, by means of fuel conserva- 
tion, position freezes, and other measures. He reiterated that 
there was no way the University could make the cutbacks proposed 
without layoffs, reductions in admissions, and serious program 
cutbacks. The issue would be resolved in the House of Representa- 
tives, and he emphasized that there was no "bargain-basement" way 
to maintain high-quality education. 

The President continued that he would ask all campuses 
to establish committees of students and faculty for savings 
wherever possible. But a flat 10 percent cut, he said, would 
enfeeble all programs without achieving the savings required. 

Chairman Healey reiterated his statement at the April 
meeting that he would like to see an end to criticisms of the 
President's offices in Boston. He said the offices are cramped 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

when compared with those of comparable universities, and added that 
the debate should be on the more substantive issues of educational 
quality. 

Next on the presidential agenda was a report on the School 
of Education. The President reported that, as a result of the 
Collegian reporter's successful suit to gain access to the records, 
the U.S. Attorney had directed the F.B.I, to secure and remove 
records pertinent to the Grand Jury's investigation. When that was 
done, the President said, he had ordered Treasurer Johnson's 
internal audit staff to withdraw from the case so that there would 
be no confusion as to who was responsible for investigation of the 
alleged wrongdoing. 

In addition, the President reported that he had 
accelerated the work of Coopers & Lybrand in their work on the 
external audit, and said they were proceeding on schedule. 

President Wood also reported on the activities of the 
School of Education Visiting Committee. Among the activities of the 
several members was a review of thirty of the 454 dissertations at 
the School from 1971 to 1974. A plenary meeting was to take 
place in Chicago on May 13 pursuant to compiling a collective 
report. The report, he said, was expected in the early summer. 

President Wood called on Chancellor Bromery of the Amherst 
campus, who began by clarifying factual details of the Governor's 
trip to the campus. He said the press reports did not fully 
reflect the strong interest of students in the issues. He stated 
that the auditorium where the Governor spoke was filled, and in 
addition that almost everyone on the campus was listening to the 
broadcast of his remarks on the student radio station. 

Chancellor Bromery next welcomed the new student Trustee, 
John O'Keefe who, he said, had had useful experience as Chairman 
of the Commuter Assembly. Chancellor Bromery also announced that 
Dean Dean Alfange of the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences 
had been named Acting Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and 
Provost. 

Chancellor Golino of the Boston campus indicated that he 
had no remarks, after which the President called upon Acting Dean 
Butcher of the Medical School, who noted with pleasure the presence 
of several members of the student body. At the Chairman's request 
one student, Mr. Gene Whitman, stated his view that the Medical 
School was needed by the people of the Commonwealth, and that the 
Commonwealth needs primary care physicians. Primary care, he added, 
is one of the main goals of the School. 

The Chairman next directed the Trustees' attention to the 
report of the Executive Committee. The first item of business was

subject to subsequently being amended, revised, 
added to or repealed by the Board of Trustees 
under the provisions of said Chapter 648. 



Chairman Healey turned next to the matter of a Delegation 
of Authority for UM/ Amherst. This was an authorization for Chan- 
cellor Bromery to sign a technical assistance contract for the 
University between the Amherst campus and the government of 
Ecuador. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery 
or his designee to execute all necessary 
contracts and documents for and in behalf of 
the University of Massachusetts, through its 
School of Education, with the Government of 
Ecuador; to thereby continue the program whereby 
the University of Massachusetts will use its 
efforts to render technical advice and assist- 
ance to the Government of Ecuador for the pur- 
pose of developing effective methods and 
materials to create sequential systems of non- 
formal education and for related purposes all 
as set forth in the contract to be signed between 
the said parties dated in May 1975, a copy of 
which contract shall be on file with the Office 
of the Treasurer, University of Massachusetts, 
Amherst, Massachusetts. Said contract term 
shall be from May 1, 1975, to March 31, 1976.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Last on the Executive agenda was the matter of Honorary 
Upon motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : That the Board of Trustees confirm the additional 
candidate for an Honorary Degree to be awarded 
at the UM/ Amherst 1975 Commencement as agreed 
upon in Executive Session of the Executive 
Committee of this date and instruct the Chan- 
cellor of the campus to proceed with necessary 
arrangements . 

Chairman Healey next called on Trustee Carlson to give 
the report of the Committee on the Budget. Trustee Carlson 
reported first on the University Austerity Program. He said con- 
siderable savings had been achieved in reducing fuel and salary 
deficiencies, from $8.7 million to $4.9 million. Other measures 
had been reported on at the meeting. 

Trustee Carlson next introduced two matters which had been 
voted at a meeting just prior to the Board meeting, Revised Budget 
Allocations (Doc. T75-103) and a Trust Fund Interest Request for 
Fund Allocation from Reserves (Doc. T75-104) . A motion was made 
and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the revised Operating Budget for the 
Amherst campus as set forth in Trustee Document 
T75-103. 

and it was 

VOTED : To approve the transfer of funds from the 
Trustee Reserve Account to the Trust Fund 
Interest Account for the purposes outlined 
in Trustee Document T75-104 in the amount of 
$49,000. 

The Committee had also discussed budget options for 
FY 1976, focusing on the distinction between administrative and 
program options. It was felt by the Committee that administrative 
measures, such as the position freeze, may help in the short term, 
but that program options will have to be squarely faced for long- 
run savings. Trustee Carlson added that, though it is difficult 
to determine what impact the budget recommendation of the Executive 
Office of Educational Affairs will have on student service and 
academic programs, the Committee felt that it was inevitable that 
both would probably be effected. 

The Chairman next called on Trustee Shaler to give the 
report of the Committee on Student Affairs. Trustee Shaler first 
spoke of the proposed Amendment to Tuition Waiver Policies (Doc. 
T75-117) . This amendment had been discussed and recommended to the 
Finance Committee. 

The second item on the formal agenda was a presentation 
on Student Unionization on the Amherst campus. Trustee Savini had 
said that the intent of the proposal was to grant to students

rights similar to those possessed by members of the University 
staff. Chairman Shaler had pointed out, however, that he had been 
advised by Counsel Searson not to take any action because there was 
serious question whether the rights claimed were properly the 
primary responsibility of the students or the faculty. To take any 
action, Counsel Searson had informed him, would radically alter 
the governance statement of the University and, because of the 
legal complexities of the issue, Chairman Shaler closed discussion 
of the matter. 

Representatives of the Student Action Committee on the 
Amherst campus had then presented a list of nine demands directed 
to the Trustees, the Legislature, and the campus administration. 
Some of the demands were discussed; others were not because they 
were not pertinent to Student Affairs. Trustee Shaler said he had 
expressed reservations about discussing these matters, because of 
the possibility that the governance system might be compromised. 
The students had replied that the Governance Statement had failed 
the students and they had elected to sidestep it. After discussion 
of a demand for a cost-benefit analysis of the Campus Center fee, 
the Committee had unanimously 

VOTED : That an explanation be given the Committee, 

through the Chancellor, of the Campus Center's 
policy of withholding information, the nature 
of the information, and its accessibility, 
and that the Committee make its findings known. 

After more discussion of the demands, the students' group 
announced that it would return for further discussion in the future. 

The Chairman next called upon Trustee Gordon for the 
report of the Committee on Finance. Trustee Gordon first reported 
on the petition of the tenants of married students housing at UM/ 
Amherst. The Committee had expressed the concern that it not 
break faith with the students, with whom it had agreed to meet 
again, if their complaints remained unresolved. Chancellor Bromery, 
however, had reported that an agreement had been signed between the 
students and the University at a meeting in April to work towards 
developing a cooperative, and this agreement and the ongoing 
dialogue on the issues in the Petition had precluded any need for 
a meeting with the Trustee Committees on Student Affairs and 
Finance. The Committee had then 

VOTED : To receive the April 16, 1975, progress report 
from Dr. Gage, Vice Chancellor for Student 
Affairs, regarding the negotiations between 
the UM/Amherst administration and the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts Tenants Association as an 
information item only, with the understanding 
that any proposal resulting from the Statement 
of Understanding (April 14, 1975) would be 
examined by the University Counsel before pre- 
sentation to the Board of Trustees. 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Committee had voted to go into executive session to 
discuss the audit of the School of Education with representatives 
of the accounting firm of Coopers & Lybrand. After the executive 
session, the President had reported that a contract proposal had 
been signed with Coopers & Lybrand which set forth what the firm 
was to do in two phases. Phase I entailed a study of grant and 
contract accounting at the University, to be followed by recommenda- 
tions for improvement, and Phase II entailed tests and examination 
of specific grants and contracts of the School of Education over 
a specific period of time. 

A motion was made and seconded, and it was 



VOTED: To ratify and approve the action of the President 
in negotiating a contract between the University 
and Coopers & Lybrand, Auditors, as set forth in 
the Agreement dated April 11, 1975. 

Next the Committee discussed a proposed amendment to the 
Tuition Waiver Policies (Doc. T75-075B) as set forth in Foreign 
Student Tuition Waivers (Doc. T75-117) . After a brief discussion 
of the need for the amendment, the Committee had voted to recommend 
that the Board approve it. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the University's Tuition Waiver Policies 
as set forth in Trustee Document T75-075B be 
amended by inserting a new section 3.2 to read, 
in its entirety, as follows: 

3.2 Foreign Students 

A tuition waiver for foreign students is an 
appropriate method of encouraging and enabling 
foreign students from geographic areas currently 
underrepresented at the University in order to 
encourage cross-cultural interchange at the 
University. These tuition waivers are to be 
awarded on the basis of financial need and are 
authorized up to a maximum of ten percent of the 
total number of foreign students attending the 
granting campus, to be allotted either to foreign 
graduate or undergraduate students in direct 
proportion to their representation on the grant- 
ing campus; provided, however, if the total 
number of foreign students enrolled on the 
granting campus is 200 or less, the maximum 
number of tuition waivers may be twenty. 

The next agenda item was a report on the proposed Ohio 
Land Sale. Further information on this matter would be forthcoming, 
Trustee Gordon said.

The Committee had also been advised that the University's 
insurance advisor, Mr. Joseph Albert, had been able to place a 
binder on proposed General Liability Insurance coverage as of 
April 1, and that negotiations were still in process. Finally, 
Trustee Gordon informed the Trustees that the Committee had agreed 
to meet at a later date with the Committee on the Budget to discuss 
fee-based budgets. 

Chairman Healey directed the Trustees' attention to the 
report of Trustee Troy, Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy. Trustee Troy reported that the Committee had 
discussed specific Tenure Appointments at UM/Amherst, UM/Boston , 
and UM/Worcester (Docs. T75-088, T75-107, T75-108) in executive 
session. After the executive session, President Wood had 
summarized his appointments. Out of 67 positive departmental recom- 
mendations at Amherst, the Chancellor had endorsed 49, and the 
President had appointed 46, believing that further information was 
required in several cases, as well as for other reasons. 

On the Boston campus, 23 recommendations had emanated 
from the departmental level and all had been endorsed by the Chan- 
cellor and, of these, 16 had been appointed by the President. Two 
of the seven not appointed were held for further information. 
Trustee Troy reported that the President had stated that the insti- 
tutional need criterion had been a factor in only one of the Boston 
cases not appointed, and had expressed his concern that certain of 
the Boston recommendations did not seem satisfactory from the point 
of view of traditional criteria of distinction in teaching, 
scholarship, and service. 

Trustee Troy said the President had also cited a table in 
a recent issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education which showed 
that the proportion of tenured faculty members in Massachusetts 
public colleges and universities was eleven percentage points 
higher than the national average. These figures, he had observed, 
indicated the need for greater stringency in campus recommendations. 

Chairman Troy then moved three votes, which were 
seconded and 

VOTED : To concur in the President's appointments to 
tenure at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, as contained in Doc. T75-107. 

VOTED : To concur in the President's appointments to

Turning to five proposed New Appointments with Tenure at 
UM/Amherst (Doc. T75-109, T75-119, T75-116, T75-110, T75-106) , 
Trustee Troy said Vice President Lynton and Provost Gluckstern had 
explained that, because of difficult economic conditions, it is 
general University policy to fill new positions at lower ranks and 
at lower salaries. At the same time, he had observed, we should 
not eliminate the possibility of making a few key appointments 
which would significantly strengthen certain departments. Within 
the context of budgetary considerations, he had continued, it 
would be fruitful and financially feasible to combine generally 
junior appointments with a few distinguished senior appointments. 

After a motion was made and seconded, it was accordingly 

VOTED : To concur with the President's appointment with 
tenure of Dr. Andy B. Anderson as Associate 
Professor of Sociology at the University of

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Troy spoke next of a proposed New Appointment with 
Tenure at UM/Boston (Doc. T75-111) . He pointed out that this 
proposal was the culmination of a two-year search for the right 
person to fill a key position. A motion was made and seconded, 
and it was 

VOTED : To concur in the President's appointment with 
tenure of Dr. Frederick C. Gamst as Professor 
of Anthropology at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Boston, as set forth in Doc. T75-111. 

The Committee had next heard a presentation from a 
delegation of the faculties at UM/Boston who put forth a resolution 
of the University Assembly on the subject of personnel decisions. 
Trustee Troy reported that the delegation had expressed concern 
over the principle that faculty personnel recommendations will be 
reversed only in rare and carefully explained cases was being 
eroded. They had also expressed concern about the proper applica- 
tion of the criterion of institutional need. 

Trustee Troy said Vice Chancellor Spaethling had thought 
the delegation was not hostile, but rooted in special difficulties 
caused by the cessation of the growth which had characterized the 
Boston campus throughout its life. The faculty, he had said, are 
now having to understand that their "primary responsibility" in 
personnel matters is indeed a responsibility, and not a privilege. 

In reply to the delegation, Trustee Troy reported that 
President Wood had reiterated the validity and Trustee approval of 
the institutional need criterion. He had also cited the need to 
be aware of the cost in terms of lost opportunity of poor personnel 
decisions. He had welcomed this opportunity to facilitate communi- 
cation on these matters. 

The Committee's next item of business was the proposed 
Establishment of a Department of Radiology and the Establishment 
of a Department of Nuclear Medicine at UM/Worcester (Docs. T75-112, 
T75-113) . Trustee Troy reported the Committee's satisfaction with 
the necessity for these departments, and after a motion was made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To establish a Department of Radiology at the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School, as 
described in Doc. T75-112. 

VOTED : To establish a Department of Nuclear Medicine 

at the University of Massachusetts Medical School

Ms. Flannery stated her hope that the planning document 
for the departmental structure of the Medical School would be pro- 
vided before the Trustees are asked to make more such appointments

with tenure. Acting Dean Butcher replied that the document would be 
submitted to the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy in 
June. 

Two other Worcester matters were two New Appointments 
with Tenure at UM/Worcester (Doc. T75-114, T75-115) . Following 
motions made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To concur with the President's appointment with 
tenure of Dr. Lloyd E. Hawes as Professor of 
Radiology at the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School, as described in Doc. T75-114. 

VOTED : To concur in the President's appointment with 
tenure of Dr. Arthur A. Like as Professor of 
Pathology at the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School, as described in Doc. T75-115. 

Trustee Troy then directed the Trustees' attention to the 
proposed Establishment of a Degree in Environmental Sciences at 
UM/ Amherst (Doc. T75-105) . It had been explained at the Committee's 



3 9 41 



meeting that this was a program already in existence but which had 
not been formally designated as a major. Chairman Healey asked 
about the status of the program with respect to the Board of Higher 
Education. My Lynton replied that it had received first-stage 
approval, and would be submitted again. It was then moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To establish a Bachelor of Science degree in 
Environmental Sciences at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, as described in Doc. 
T75-105. 

The final item on the agenda had been approval of the 
Spring Graduation Lists at UM/ Amherst, UM/Boston, and UM/Worcester 
(Doc. T75-122) . Upon a motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the undergraduate, graduate and 

Division of Continuing Education degrees to be 
awarded by UM/Amherst on May 31, 1975, by the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture at UM/Amherst 
on May 30, 1975, by UM/Boston on May 29, 1975, 
and by UM/Worcester on May 24, 1975, subject to 
the completion of course and other requirements 
and final certification by the Registrar at 
each campus . 

Reporting on a special meeting of the Committee which had 
convened on April 22, recessed, and reconvened before the Board 
meeting earlier in the day, Trustee Troy informed the Trustees that 
the agenda had been a consideration of a tenure grievance. Pursuant 
to a decision in the matter, the Committee had requested the full

written record of the matter, and had then reviewed it at the 
meeting. Trustee Troy reported that the Committee had reached 
a finding which would be transmitted to the President. 

After Trustee Troy's report, Chancellor Bromery described 
the support and enthusiasm of the Amherst campus for the appoint- 
ments of Dr. Halmos and Dr. Dethier. He called the Trustees' 
attention to the excellence in teaching and scholarship of both 
men, and informed them that he had brought two boxes filled with 
their books to the meeting should any Trustee wish to examine 
them. 

Chairman Healey next called for the report of the 
Committee on Long-Range Planning, which follows. 

The main agenda item once again was enrollment planning 
for the Amherst campus. The Committee also began consideration of 
a report prepared by Chancellor Golino which discussed the overall 
direction of the Harbor Campus and responded to 41 University 
Assembly proposals growing out of 11 New Directions Committee 
recommendations. Trustee Rowland reminded members of the Board 
that they had received copies of the New Directions Committee 
Report in July 1974. She went on to say that the Assembly pro- 
posals cover a range of administrative, procedural and philoso- 
phical points with respect to summer, extended day, pre-college 
and graduate programs. The New Directions Committee's recommenda- 
tions concerning admissions policy — which constitute 2/3 of the 
total — have not yet been considered by the Assembly. Since the 
full text of the Chancellor's report was not available to Committee 
members until shortly before the meeting, the Committee postponed 
further discussion until the May 14 meeting, she reported. 

The Committee's discussion on Amherst enrollment planning 
centered on a long and careful report prepared by the campus which 
addresses four areas of concern to the Committee and requested by 
them for their deliberation in establishing enrollment guidelines — 
future student demand by level and program; physical capacity of 
the present buildings; potential environmental impact of further 
growth; and appropriate program mix. Trustee Rowland said that the 
campus report was prepared by a subcommittee of the Program and 
Budget Council, and it recommends that the enrollment ceiling be 
defined as 25,000 FTE students with an upper to lower division 
ratio not to exceed 60/40 and a graduate/undergraduate ratio not 
to exceed 20/80. Given the high proportion of part-time graduate 
students, she said, the report's recommendations would mean a 
total headcount at full size of about 28,000 students with 28% 
graduate students. In discussing these recommendations, several 
questions were raised by the Committee with regard to the size and 
nature of the increase proposed in the graduate enrollment. The 
major points in this discussion were noted in the Minutes of the 
meeting, but she said that if any Trustees would like a copy of 
the full campus report, Vice President Robinson would be glad to 
provide it . 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Several members of the Committee had expressed their 
strong desire for a regular opportunity for informal discussion 
among members of the Committee itself. This, she said, had her 
full support, and she stated her belief that it will serve to 
strengthen the Committee and enable it to contribute more fully 
to the future development of the University. 

Chairman Healey next asked for the report of the Committee 
on Buildings and Grounds. Trustee Knowles said that Mr. Post, 
Assistant Vice President for Planning, updated the Committee on the 
environmental impact report for Phase II construction of UM/Boston. 
He had reported that the concerns of the Boston Redevelopment 
Authority had been alleviated, and that the final report will be 
filed with the Executive Office of Environmental Affairs. Con- 
struction of Phase II could begin sixty days after approval of the 
report. 

Vice President Robinson had reported, Trustee Knowles 
said, on the Kennedy Library site selection process. The Kennedy 
Site Selection Committee is still interested in a site at either 
UM/ Amherst or UM/Boston, and it is hoped that the Committee would 
reach a decision in May. At a meeting before the Board meeting, 
members of the Committee discussed the positions of the Bristol 
County Tourist Association and Southeastern Massachusetts Univer- 
sity, both interested in providing a site for the library. Vice 
President Robinson had also reviewed the positive and negative 
aspects of an Amherst or Boston location. 

Continuing the report, Mr. Post had reported on the 
progress of site work at UM/Worcester . Work on the roads, lighting, 
and landscaping had been authorized but might have to be curtailed 
due to a lack of funds. Mr. Rawn had reported on the shuttle bus 
turnaround at Columbia Station, and on the desirability and 
difficulty of acquiring the Gulf Oil property. A request to the 
MBTA to add a Quincy Line stop at the station was also being 
developed. 

Mr. Post had reported on difficulties of University 
assent to the request of the state Department of Agriculture for 
use of University land for growing food. Mr. Rawn reported on the 
anticipated schedule for planning, approval, and construction of 
Building 120 at UM/Boston. 

Finally, Trustee Knowles said the Committee had also 
recommended a Request from the State Department of Public Works 
to Construct a Transmitter on University Land on Mount Lincoln 
(Doc. T75-118) . Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the Amherst campus 

or those designated by him to prepare the necessary 
instruments to license the Department of Public 
Works of the Commonwealth to enter upon the lands

and operating a Radio Transmitter Station to 
maintain communication with its vehicles; further 
that Treasurer Kenneth W. Johnson shall be empowered 
and authorized to execute all instruments for 
and in behalf of the Trustees of the University in 
furtherance of these matters. 

Finally, the Committee had discussed the great contribution 
that Judge J. John Fox had made to the Medical School. In recogni- 
tion of his efforts, the Committee had voted to recommend that 
Amphitheater One be named in his honor. Chairman Healey remarked 
that Judge Fox, who was the author of the Massachusetts Gun Control 
Law, had been active in the development of the Medical School. 
He said he fully supported the recommendation. A motion was made 
and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : That Amphitheater One at the Medical School 

at the University of Massachusetts at Worcester 
be named the J. John Fox Amphitheater. 

The final item on the Committee's agenda had been a 
report on the feasibility study for the parking garage at UM/ 
Worcester. Concern about the difficulty of financing the garage 
had been expressed, and the discussion which had followed had 
centered on alternative methods of solving this problem. 

After Trustee Knowles's report, the Chairman spoke on the 
subject of the Kennedy Library. The position of the Board, he said, 
was that with proper consideration of the environmental aspects, 
the Board was equally receptive to the location of the library on 
either the Amherst or Boston campuses. 

The next item of business was that of Personnel Actions 
(Docs. T75-123, T75-124, T75-128) . The Chairman indicated that the 
proposed actions had been circulated to members of the Board, and 
asked that they be approved. Speaking about the personnel action 
which would effect the voluntary salary adjustment of the Presi- 
dent, Trustee Robertson said that he believed the President's 
compensation to be tooO_ow in light of comparable salaries across 
the country and in view of the President's devotion to the Univer- 
sity. He expressed his intention to abstain from the Personnel 
Action for the President's Office. Trustee Rowland also abstained 
President Wood expressed his appreciation for Trustee Robertson's 
statement. 

Upon a motion made and seconded, it was

contained in Trustee Document T75-123.

actions of the BHE which Trustee Knowles reported were the approval 
of the revisions of the Affirmative Action Plan for submission to 
the Equal Employment Panel, a vote to advise the Regional Board of

Junior College, and a vote to refer the BHE's report concerning 
questions about the degree-granting authority of Worcester Junior 
College to the Attorney General. 

There was no further business to come before the Board, 
and the meeting was adjourned at 4:50 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees present and 
acting throughout, the meeting was convened at 3:00 p.m. 

Chairman Healey said that Trustee Knowles had called to 
the attention of the Secretary the fact that, contrary to the state- 
ment made at the May 7 meeting of the Board that Dr. Guido Majno's 
book was the first publication emanating from UM/Worcester , it was 
actually the second, the first being a book written by Robison, 
Butcher and Sutherland, entitled Cyclic Amp , published by Academic 
Press, Inc., New York, New York in 1971. 

There being no further comments , it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of May 7, 1975. 

Chairman Healey announced that since the Board of 
Trustees would not meet again until August and since there were 
matters which must be resolved before that time, steps must be 
taken to make this possible. Upon a motion by Trustee Robertson, 
duly seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Executive Committee of the Board 
of Trustees to take any action it deems necessary 
or appropriate on behalf of the Board of Trustees 
until the next scheduled meeting of said Board. 

Chairman Healey next asked for comments from President 
Wood. President Wood said that due to the lateness of the hour and 
the full agenda of the Board, he would waive his comments as would 
Chancellor Golino and Dr. wheeler, representing Acting Dean Butcher, 
but that Chancellor Bromery had an announcement to make. 

Chancellor Bromery reported that an agreement had been 
reached on Friday between the University of Massachusetts Tenants 
Association and the Amherst campus administration and that a copy 
of the Statement of Agreement was being sent through the President, 
to the Finance Committee. He said that the agreement does not 
commit the University to a binding contract. As a result of the 
agreement the students have turned over to the University the rent 
money held in escrow and the Tenants Association and the campus 
administration will meet during the summer to finalize the agree- 
ment. 

Chairman Healey next reported that the Executive Commit- 
tee had met earlier that day, at which time recommendations of the 
Hay Associates 1 Study of the Organization of Administrative 
Resources Within the University of Massachusetts had been discussed. 
Since the Executive Committee meeting had been open to all Trustees 
and had been well attended by them, Chairman Healey said he would 
not go into details of the discussion but would present to the Board 
the recommended vote. On motion made and seconded, it was

VOTED : That, in order to implement the Hay Associates 
Study on an interim basis (pending a compre- 
hensive presentation of policies and procedures 
to be made by the President to the Board of 
Trustees in September, 1975), the President be 
authorized to make the following adjustments 
in programs and organizational arrangements. 

— Adopt the recommended salary policy lines 
appearing as exhibit 25 of the Hay Study and 
apply them to the thirty-three senior execu- 
tive positions analyzed in the Hay Study and 
listed on page 30, resulting in new salary 
ranges for these positions. 

— Establish the Advisory Committee on Job Con- 
tent Measurement and the Evaluation Review 
Committee, described on pages 65-67 of the 
Hay Study, to measure, where appropriate, 
the job content of professional non-academic 
positions at the University of Massachusetts, 
by means of the Hay-developed guide charts 
and the Hay-recommended position data ques- 
tionnaire and position description formats 
appearing in Section 9 of the study. Com- 
mittee recommendations of appropriate salary 
ranges shall be made to the President for 
his final authorization and shall be a 
revision to current delegations of authority. 

— Establish the Organization Design Review 
Committee, as described on pages 68-69 of 
the Hay Study, to review the organizational 
structure of the University. The composi- 
tion of the Committee shall be determined 
by the Board of Trustees. Committee evalua- 
tions and recommendations concerning organiza- 
tional structure shall be made to the Presi- 
dent for his approval and submission to the 
Board of Trustees for adoption. 

— Reallocate the resources of the President's 
Office as required to strengthen its manage- 
ment capabilities, including the establish- 
ment of the position of vice president for 
financial planning and control, and accord- 
ingly restructure reporting relations of the 
management systems group and the administra- 
tive data processing center to place them on 
a University-wide basis, and make appropriate 
adjustments in the Treasurer's Office to take 
into account these changes, including appro- 
priate arrangements for its physical locations 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

in Boston and Amherst. 

— Strengthen the University's internal audit 
mechanism to include the determination of 
the desirability of employing the open bid- 
ding process to select outside accounting 
firms when appropriate. 

— Take such other actions to implement the 
foregoing as the President may deem appro- 
priate, notwithstanding any previous dele- 
gations of authority or retention of auth- 
ority by the Board. However, salaries in 
excess of the maximum of the general salary 
schedule, salaries for Officers of the 
University and Chancellors shall require 
Board approval. 

Chairman Healey asked Trustee Troy to comment on the pro- 
posed Academic Personnel Policy (Doc. T75-125) . Trustee Troy 
explained that this document is the result of a year-long study by 
the Ad Hoc Multicampus Personnel Policies Committee. He said that 
it had been reviewed at some length by the Amherst campus, had been 
reviewed, though less extensively, by the Boston campus, and had 
also been reviewed by the Worcester Medical School staff. He said 
the vote being proposed to the Board recommends that the policy be 
reviewed and reevaluated by the President in consultation with the 
campus governance units by May 1976, and that the policy be 
reviewed by the Board on or before September 1, 1976. He stressed 
the importance of the document, which defines clearly the personnel 
policies affecting appointments, reappointments, promotions and 
tenure, and the rights and responsibilities of the University 
faculty and administration. 

Trustee Troy said that in the past it had been possible 
to operate under a less formal policy, but today's conditions 
dictate the need for more precise definitions of the laws, rights, 
duties and privileges of the University faculty and administration. 
He added that the document is not a complete statement of personnel 
policies, as it does not deal with such matters as grievances, 
dismissals, or the status of part-time faculty. These matters 
will be considered, he said, at a later date. 

Trustee Troy concluded his remarks by stating that the 
Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy and the Executive 
Committee were impressed by the sheer amount of work that went into 
the document — more than 60 meeting hours. He said this document 
was truly forged by the faculty and administration, not something 
imposed from without. Trustee Troy said that in the Executive 
Committee meeting an amendment had been made to the vote recorded 
in the minutes of the meeting of the Faculty and Educational Policy 
Committee. He read the change. On motion made and seconded, it was

VOTED : To adopt the University Academic Personnel Policy 
contained in Document T75-125, as amended, 
provided, however, that Section 6.1(a) shall apply 
only to instructors appointed after July 1, 1975; 
and 

That, recognizing the importance of further 
review of the Academic Personnel Policy, includ- 
ing full discussion and evaluation by all members 
of the University community, and recognizing 
further the need for additional consideration by 
the Boston campus, this policy shall be reviewed 
by the Board of Trustees on or before September 1, 
1976; and 

That Documents T63-050, T64-061 (except for Part 
II, Articles 5-7), T73-069, and any other policy,

are rescinded; and 

That the President, after consultation with 
campus governance units and an ad hoc multi- 
campus academic personnel policy committee, 
review said Policy and recommend any appropri- 
ate modifications thereto no later than 
May, 1976. 

Chairman Healey said that the next agenda item, Group 
Practice Rules and Regulations , had been deferred for further dis- 
cussion at the June 25 meeting of the Executive Committee. 

He then asked Trustee Shaler to review discussions 
relating to the Use of Residence Halls and Dining Commons, UM / 
Amherst (Doc. T75-130) . Trustee Shaler said that this matter had 
been discussed at two recent meetings of the Committee on Student 
Affairs, and that the Executive Committee had acted favorably on 
the recommendations made to it by the Committee on Student Affairs, 
He said, although not possible at this time, it is the hope that 
eventually there will be a voluntary plan both for living in the 
dormitories and eating in the dining commons. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That, effective the fall semester 1975, for one 
year, all full-time undergraduate students 
(enrolled for twelve semester credits or more) 
on the Amherst campus be required to live in 
on-campus residence halls during their freshman, 
sophomore, and junior years. Exemption from 
this requirement may be granted to the following: 
married students, veterans, students living in 
and commuting from the home of their parent (s)

Trustees O'Keefe and Rothenburger voted nay, and Secretary Parks 
abstained. It was further 

VOTED : That, effective the fall semester, 1975, for one 
year, all full-time undergraduate students 
(enrolled for twelve semester credits or more) 
on the Amherst campus be required to subscribe 
to a boarding plan in the campus dining commons 
during their freshman, sophomore, and junior 
years. Exemption from this requirement may be 
granted to the following: married students, 
veterans, students living in and commuting from 
the home of their parent (s) or guardian(s) 
while in attendance at the University, and res- 
ident members of fraternities or sororities at

Trustees O'Keefe and Rothenburger voted 



Chairman Healey then called on Trustee Knowles, delegate 
from the Board to the Board of Higher Education. Trusteee Knowles 
reported that the Board of Higher Education had met on May 16 at 
which time the Board had accepted, with regret, the resignation 
of Chancellor Patrick E. McCarthy. She said that the Board had 
voted to rescind its previous recommendation regarding the granting 
of degree authority to Bay State Academy. Trustee Knowles reported 
that the Board of Higher Education had adopted the recommendations 
of the Collegiate Authority Committee's ad hoc Committee on Post- 
Secondary Occupational Education and had conveyed these recommenda- 
tions to the Department of Education's Occupational Education 
Master Plan Project. The Board had instructed the Collegiate 
Authority Committee and Staff to receive proposed programs for 
September, 1975, implementation from Roxbury Community College 
after the calendar deadline. She said the Board had accepted the 
names of the 1975 Christian A. Herter Memorial Scholarship 
recipients. 

Chairman Healey next called for the report of the Long- 
Range Planning Committee. Trustee Rowland, Chairman of the 
Committee, reported that at its May 14 meeting the Committee's 
agenda had consisted of Chancellor Golino's report on reactions to 
the New Directions Report and his views as to what the overall 
direction of the campus should be. The Committee's discussion 
revolved around the Chancellor's request for Trustee endorsement 
or guidance on campus direction and on the importance of setting 
priorities among the various programs and commitments recommended 
by the Assembly and the campus administration.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The setting of priorities at UM/Boston, she said, is 
particularly difficult because there are conflicting views as to 
what the mission and purpose of the campus should be. Trustee 
Rowland said that these conflicts had been eloquently reviewed by 
the New Directions Committee, which proposed to reconcile what it 
called "classical" and "democratic" ideals through a rather compli- 
cated effort to assure "representativeness" in admissions. 

It was the proposals of the Committee for representative- 
ness in geographic location, academic skills, income, sex, age and 
ethnicity that had occasioned the now well-known reference to a 
"complex nesting of variables." Trustee Rowland said that the 
Assembly has not yet debated the New Directions recommendations on 
admissions. It has, however, proposed an extensive list of com- 
mitments to extended-day, summer-school, basic-skills, counseling, 
diagnostic and precollege programs. It has also proposed a limit 
of five percent of resources to be spent on graduate work. 

In his report and his comments to the Committee, Chan- 
cellor Golino had emphasized the high priority he .placed on graduate 
programs and his reasons for disapproving the graduate limit pro- 
posed by the Assembly, while endorsing all but one of the other 
Assembly recommendations. The Long-Range Planning Committee, said 
Trustee Rowland, had discussed the substantial resource commitments 
implied by the recommendations of the Assembly and of the Chancellor 
and the difficulty of obtaining funding for these commitments in 
the current economy. The Committee, she said, was also impressed 
by the difficulty of assuring significant enrollments for summer, 
precollege, extended-day or graduate programs unless the campus as 
a whole continued to grow and develop. To subtract such enrollments 
from the present total of 6600 FTE students, she said, would not 
only confine still further the development of the undergraduate

Trustee Rowland stressed the impor

options, she said, are important if an effor

Although time constraints precluded a full discussion of 
how and to whom increased access could be provided, strong concern 
was expressed that increased access should be provided and to 
accomplish this, programs in basic skills and counseling were 
particularly important. The Committee, she said, is in the process 
of developing a statement on priorities for presentation to the 
Board, and opportunity will be provided for comment before action 
is taken.

Trustee Rowland reported on the activities of the 
Trustee Advisory Council on the Fine Arts, which had been estab- 
lished by the Board at the recommendation of the Long-Range Planning 
Committee in January 1974. She said that she had met with the 
Council and that it is an impressive and distinguished group. It 
has worked closely with faculty members in the University's fine 
arts departments. The preliminary recommendations of the Council 
at this time are: 

— to concentrate resources in the arts and not try to 
offer a full graduate and undergraduate program in 
each area on each campus; 

-to encourage at the graduate level at Amherst con- 
centration on a limited number of very high-quality 
programs recruiting the most talented students; 

— to encourage both campuses at the undergraduate 
level to provide opportunities for participation 
to as many students as possible in support of 
general liberal arts education. 

Trustee Rowland informed the Board that the Council was 
impressed by the opening events scheduled for the UM/Amherst Fine 
Arts Center and by the potential of the Center to serve as a focal 
point for cultural activities in Western Massachusetts. She said 
that she looked forward to meeting with the Council more exten- 
sively in the fall and expressed her appreciation for the assis- 
tance of Vice President Lynton and Staff Associate Pat Crosson in 
the work of the Council. 

Chairman Healey asked Trustee Shaler, Chairman of the 
Committee on Student Affairs, to report. Trustee Shaler said the 
Committee had met on May 20, at which time members heard a memor- 
andum from Chancellor Bromery clarifying the procedure for dis- 
seminating information with regard to the Campus Center. 

The Committee next discussed the lack of financial 
aid for medical students at UM/Worcester . Budget Director Garten- 
berg and Provost Smith had proposed an increase in work-study funds 
and allocating a larger percentage of state scholarship funds to 
UM/Worcester as temporary sources of relief. The Committee, said 
Trustee Shaler, supported increased aid and expressed hope that 
funds from other sources would increase. 

Trusteee Shaler said the Committee had also discussed the 
use of residence halls and dining commons at the Amherst campus on 
May 20 and had met again this morning on this matter which had led 
to the action taken earlier in the meeting under the Executive 
Committee report.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Committee had discussed the UM/Amherst and UM/Boston fee-based 
budgets, prior to action by the joint meeting of the Budget and 
Finance Committees. Considerable discussion took place with regard 
to a proposed expansion of the Legal Services Office, UM/Amherst, 
he said, and Counsel Sear son had stated some of the legal questions 
raised by this issue, indicating that it might be necessary 
ultimately to obtain a ruling from the Attorney General on this 
matter. 

Trustee Shaler said the Committee had also heard 
reports on the UM/Amherst and UM/Boston day care centers. Among 
the major problems related to the centers, he said, was the matter 
of obtaining liability waivers from parents. 

The last item discussed by the Committee, said Trustee 
Shaler, was a report on couseling and support services at UM/ 
Amherst. Discussion had centered, he said, on commuter affairs, 
counseling services, and married students' housing. The Committee 
will discuss further in the near future the matter of commuter 
affairs. 

Chairman Healey next asked Trustee Gordon, Chairman of 
the Committee on Finance, for his report. Trustee Gordon said the 
Committee had met on May 27 and continued its meeting this morning. 
He said the Committee heard a report from Investment Counsel, John 
Wood of Standish, Ayer and Wood. He said that Joseph Albert had 
been successful in adding the nonmedical personnel at UM/Worcester 
to the General Liability Insurance Policy. He said that due to the 
difficulty in obtaining malpractice insurance, the Committee is 
anticipating assistance in this area from the Foley bill now pending 
in the Legislature. 

Trustee Gordon reported that in executive session the 
Committee had heard a progress report from representatives of 
Coopers & Lybrand on their evaluation of University grant and con- 
tract administration and the audit of the School of Education. 

At the end of the executive session, the Committee had 
discussed Physicians' Fee Schedules, UM/Worcester (Doc. T75-138) . 
On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve and adopt the University of Massachu- 
setts Medical Center professional charges of 
group practice plan members for patient services 
as set forth in Doc. T75-138. 

Trustee Gordon next asked for a vote to amend the Rates 
for Patient Care and Services (Doc. T75-050) as detailed in 
Addendum to Doc. T75-050 (Doc. T75-133) . Some of these rates, he 
said, represented increases and others were additional charges. 
On motion made and seconded, it was 



TRUSTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To approve the following categories of hospital 
charges: (1) Hospital Charges for Outpatient 
Clinic Visits, (2) Hospital Component of Ophthal-

and to incorporate same in Doc. T75-050, said 
amended document to be redesignated as Doc. T75- 
05 OA. 

Trustee Gordon next asked for a vote to authorize the 
direct scheduling of vendor payments as a means of simplifying the 
paper handling process at UM/Worcester . On motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Dr. Reginald W. Butcher, John F. 
Stockwell, Robert L. Cathey, and W. Clifford 
Fisher as signators on State Batch Transmittal 
Documents processed by the Medical School and 
Teaching Hospital to the State Comptroller. 

Secretary Parks asked how the rates outlined in the fee 
schedules compared with fees charged at other hospitals in the area, 
and Trustee Gordon replied that Dr. Regan of the Worcester Medical 
School staff had advised the Committee that rates had been kept 
within the limits of rates charged in the area by physicians and 
hospitals. 

Trustee Gordon next introduced the proposed William H . 
Ross Memorial Fund (Doc. T75-139) . On motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : To establish the William H. Ross Memorial Fund as 
an endowment fund for the purpose of making an 
annual award (s) of $500.00 from the income earned 
during the preceding fiscal year to a junior or 
senior enrolled as a full-time student at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and such 
awards shall be for tuition, fees, and educational 
expenses; therefore, to be eligible a student 
must be in good academic standing, be registered 
in a program major, demonstrate financial need 
but not necessarily be a member of a minority 
group, and present a written paper on the topic, 
"What I Plan to Do After Graduation That Will 
Help Society as a Whole." The recipient (s) shall 
be selected by a Committee appointed by the Chan- 
cellor consisting of a member of the Physics 
Department and two faculty members from any other 
department, school, or college of the Amherst 
campus. An award to a junior shall automatically 
be continued for the senior year without requiring 
a new paper provided the student shows a continu- 
ing need for financial support and remains in good 
academic standing.

Trustee Gordon said that Donald Cadigan at UM/Amherst 
had asked, because of his other responsibilities, to be relieved 
of his authority to sign certain documents for the University. 
There being no objection to this request, on motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : In accordance with the request of Donald W. 
Cadigan dated May 12, 1975, to rescind in 
its entirety the Trustee vote of April 26, 
1971, authorizing Donald W. Cadigan to sign 
certain items for the University of Massachu- 
setts. 

Trustee Gordon then asked for a vote to authorize the 
extension of a rental agreement for apartment facilities in New 
York City for the use of students in the UM/Amherst OUTREACH pro- 
gram. Chairman Healey asked if the University paid the rent on 
this facility and was informed that the students pay for these 
apartments. It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst, or his designee, 
to negotiate a rental agreement for apartment 
facilities in New York City, said agreement not 
to exceed the academic year ending May 31, 1976, 
for the purpose of housing approximately 14 
interns from the University who will be admin- 
istrative interns. Further, to empower and 
authorize the Treasurer of the University to 
execute a lease agreement for and in behalf of 
the University in furtherance of said purpose 
upon successful completion of said negotiations. 

Trustee Gordon then asked for approval of the Implementa - 
tion of New State Payroll System (Doc. T75-140) . There being no 
opposition, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the implementation of the "zero 
balance" advance payroll system in the New 
England Merchants National Bank, Boston, as 
described in Doc. T75-140. 

and it was further 

VOTED : To designate, effective with the first weekly 
payroll for the fiscal year 1976 (July 1975) 
or as soon thereafter as is technically 
feasible, the New England Merchants National 
Bank, Boston, as the payroll disbursement bank 
for the University of Massachusetts; and to dis- 
continue the payroll accounts in the State Street 
Bank and Trust Company, Boston, and the First 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

National Bank of Amherst upon the clearance 
and reconciliation of outstanding checks 
drawn thereon. 

Chairman Healey next called on Trustee Carlson, Chairman 
of the Budget Committee, to report. Trustee Carlson said the 
Committee had met on May 27 to consider routine matters, after 
which it had met jointly with the Committee on Finance to review 
proposed fee changes at UM/Amherst and UM/Boston. Explaining the 
reason for the joint meeting, Trustee Carlson said that, while the 
approval of fee changes is the responsibility of the Finance Com- 
mittee, the Budget Committee must be involved because fee changes 
obviously have an impact on the budget. Though the fee changes 
were a part of the budgets of the two campuses, he emphasized, the 
budgets as a whole were not under consideration at this time. 

Trustee Carlson said that the Budget Committee had 
received the final campus budget transfers as summarized in Year 
End Adjustment to FY75 Operating Budget (Doc. T75-134), including 
revisions in the Amherst list distributed by the Secretary on May 
29, and recommended approval by the Board. On motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve the State fund 
transfers proposed by the Amherst, Boston and 
Worcester campuses as set forth in Doc. T75-134 
as amended. 

Trustee Carlson said the Committee also considered FY76 
Continuing Resolution (Doc. T75-135) , a document authorizing 
expenditure of funds as of July 1 pending passage of a final state 
budget. He said that on advice of counsel the Committee had this 
morning approved an amendment to its original vote and asked for 
approval of the amended version. On motion made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : That the President be authorized to approve and 
adopt the policies and procedures governing the 
expenditure of state and nonstate funds by the 
three campuses, the Office of the President, and 
the Institute for Governmental Services from 
July 1, 1975, until such time as the Board of 
Trustees adopts the Operating Budget for FY 1976. 

The approval of expenditure of State funds 
shall be consistent with the appropriate state 
statutes governing the FY 1976 appropriation. 

Trustee Carlson said the final action of the Committee 
was to recommend the inclusion of $250,000 in the FY76 capital out- 
lay request to cover the purchase of land and development of a 
permanent terminal for the commuter bus system at Columbia Point,

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve amendments 
to the FY76 Capital Outlay Request as set 
forth in Document T75-137. 

Chairman Healey next called for the report of the joint 
meeting of the Committees on Budget and Finance. Trustee Carlson 
said Trustee Gordon had asked him to make this report. He said 
the Committees had met on May 27 and again earlier in the day, and 
that discussion had taken place with regard to the proposed fee 
changes in the proposed FY 1976 Fee-based Budget, UM/Amherst (Doc. 
T75-121) . Of the sixteen different items for which fee increases 
had been proposed, it had been recommended that action be deferred 
on five pending further review by University Counsel. 

Secretary Parks asked if any provisions were being made 
to help those students who would find it hard to meet these 
increases. Chancellor Bromery said that financial aid is awarded 
on the basis of a percentage of total cost to the student and that, 
therefore, if fees are raised, students receive a greater amount 
of financial aid. Trustee Shaler pointed out that some of the 
fee changes were voluntary. 

Trustee Carlson said the Committees had also discussed 
the Proposed FY76 Fee Increases, UM/Boston (Doc. T75-132) and 
asked if there were questions related to these increases. 
Trustee O'Keefe said it was the student body's policy to fight all 
fee increases and that, therefore, he could not vote for approval 
of these fee increases. Trustee Rothenburger said that he also 
would have to vote against the increases. 

Secretary Parks asked if, by raising fees, the University 
was raising tuition, and if this were the case, then he would have 
to know the extent of the increase before he could vote on this 
issue. 

Chancellor Bromery replied that fees charged to meet debt 
service on buildings were, in effect, tuition charges, since the 
buildings become the property of the state. He said a second type 
of fee was that charged to cover the cost of materials, supplies, 
food and services. The third type, he said, was an optional fee 
that students were not obligated to pay. Trustee O'Keefe asked 
that the Secretary of Education find ways to reduce the debt service 
through capital outlay or other means in order to reduce the burden 
of fees on students. 

There being no further discussion, on motion made and 
seconded, it was 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To approve the changes in fees at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst, as amended, as set 
forth in Doc. T75-121 with the exception of those 
relating to: The Graduate Program Fee, the Horse- 
back Riding Trust Fund, the Composition Service 
Trust Fund, the Administrative Data Processing 
Center, and the Management Systems Fee.

motion. 



Trustees O'Keefe and Rothenburger voted against the 
Secretary Parks abstained. 



Trustee Carlson's next item was the relationship between 
the Fee-based Budget and the matter of the Legal Services Office. 
Trustee O'Keefe had moved in the joint meeting that morning that 
the FY76 UM/Amherst fee-based budget contain no restrictions which 
precluded the right of the Legal Services Office to sue the Univer- 
sity and defend students in criminal cases. Trustee Carlson said 
Counsel Searson had advised the Committees that this was a very 
complex legal question but that the workload of his staff had not 
allowed him to write an opinion prior to the meeting. He therefore 
had recommended that the Committee defer the matter. It had been 
voted by the Committees that this matter be tabled for further 
consideration at the August Board meeting. 

Trustee O'Keefe then made the following motion: 

MOVED : That the Board of Trustees direct Attorney 

Searson' s office to provide them with a legal 
opinion on the motion introduced by Trustee 
O'Keefe which directs that the Student Legal 
Services Office be allowed to represent stu- 
dents in criminal matters and in suits against 
the University and that this opinion be for- 
warded to the UMass Student Government 
Association and the Trustees by July 7, 1975 
(if possible) ; and the motion voted upon by 
the Board at its August, 1975, meeting. 

Chairman Healey asked Counsel Searson if it would be 
possible for him to comply with this request, and Mr. Searson 
replied that he understood the priority of the item and would do 
all within his power and the constraints of his office to meet the 
July 7 deadline requested. 

Chairman Healey then called upon Trustee Troy to report 
as Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Troy reported that the Committee had met on May 13. The 
first item of business, he said, had been a B.A. Degree in Black 
Studies and Creation of Black Studies Department on the Boston 
Campus (Doc. T75-126) . He said that for some years there had been 
a program in black studies at the campus, but that departmental 
status is needed to strengthen and develop this area of study. 
Establishment of a department will permit recruitment of distin- 
guished faculty whereas, until the present, it has been necessary 
to draw faculty from other departments. He said Dr. Spaethling 
had said he hoped a strong Black Studies Department would offer 
courses not only to black students, but to the general student 
body, as many other ethnic-oriented courses do. 



On motion made and seconded, it was 



UM/Boston — 
Report by Dean 
of College IV 



VOTED : That the Board of Trustees establish a B.A. 
Degree in Black Studies and a Department of 
Black Studies at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Boston, as described in Doc. T75-126. 

Trustee Troy reported that the Committee had heard a 
report from Dean Freeland on the progress of College IV. He said 
that over the past year eight faculty members had been recruited, 
two with tenure, and said Dean Freeland had spent much time dis- 
cussing possible contractual agreements with other business 
schools for teaching UM/Boston students. In some cases, he said, 
it would be less expensive to send students to other schools than 
to hire the faculty to teach the courses at UM/Boston. 

Trustee Troy said Dean Freeland had reported that 
College IV planned to open in September with 250 students in the 
freshman class and others who will enter as juniors. Between 1000 
and 1100 applications had been received for the College, 200 of 
which were from students in Colleges I and II. He had said he 
expected close cooperation between the three colleges and that it 
is hoped that certain sequences of courses can be offered which 
liberal arts students in the other colleges may elect. 

Trustee Troy said Dean Freeland had listed the four 
central objectives of College IV as (1) to achieve a balance 
between liberal "arts and professional studies, (2) to prepare stu- 
dents for a variety of institutional settings and positions, (3) 
to achieve a balance between specialized training and general 
management skills, and (4) to stress the importance of practical 
experience for students and to involve management practitioners 
in the program. Trustee Troy observed that the first two years 
in the life of the new college would be experimental in spirit and 
practice and that the college would use this period of time to 
think about future new directions beyond its management program. 
He noted with interest conversations underway between College IV 
and a business in the area. This business had been involved in 
identifying students in the high schools who were interested in 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

business careers. Under exploration was a triangular relationship 
whereby students could enter the management program at the Univer- 
sity, with support from the business, on the understanding that a 
position would be waiting upon successful completion of the program 
The college appears to be off to a promising start, he said, and 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy was in full agree- 
ment with Dr. Spaethling's high praise of Dean Freeland ' s successful 
management of this new venture. Chancellor Golino also should be 
commended, said Trustee Troy, for having appointed Mr. Freeland to 
the deanship. 

Chairman Healey said that since the personnel action list- 
ed on the agenda was related to the Group Practice plan, which had 
been deferred until June 25, no action would be taken on it. 

Chairman Healey asked if there was any further business to 
be discussed. Secretary Parks asked whether Judge Garrity's 
decision with regard to the desegregation of the Boston schools, 
which contemplates housing 1500 students at the University facil- 
ities at 100 Arlington Street would adversely affect College III. 
Vice President Edelman replied that the University estimated that 
the maximum number of students which could be accommodated on the 
six floors not occupied by College III staff and students was 750. 
He added that the staff of the Office of the Commissioner of Educa- 
tion agreed with the University that the proposed 1500 students 
could not be accommodated. Mr. Edelman said the 250 students who 
occupied two floors of the building this year were located on the 
floors requiring the least renovation. He said that Sandra Lynch, 
attorney for the State Board of Education, had filed a motion with 
Judge Garrity last week, accompanied by supporting documents, to 
the effect that the maximum number of students the University 
believes could be comfortably housed on the six floors available, 
compatible with the other uses of the building, would be 750. 
The University, he said, is now awaiting the outcome of that motion 

There being no further business to come before the 
Board, the meeting was adjourned at 4:00 p.m.
